The Emmie Awards 2018! (How it Works + Nominating) [NOMINATING CLOSED]

Hey marshmallows! I was reading through my winter wrap-up post from last year, and remembered that exactly 1 year ago today I introduced the Emmie Awards!

These awards were so fun and popular last year, that I decided to do it again this year and make it an annual thing! December is a big month on AGW: the Emmie Awards, our blogaversiary on the 21, and this year, my Christmas/blogaversiary stop-motion!

So without further adieu, I am proud to introduce…

The Emmie Awards 2018!

The exclamation point is practically part of the title 😂

It works kind of like the Emmy Awards: for each category, you can nominate your favorite bloggers in the comments section! You cannot nominate yourself. (And it would be really awkward if I won something so…you can technically nominate me, but I would prefer you not to.) Nominations will be open until December 16!

Then, I will create a poll where you can vote for the nominees! You cannot vote for yourself, and please, only vote once. Voting will be open until December 25 (Christmas)!

After the voting, I will notify the winners through the contact form on their blog so they can prepare their ‘acceptance speech’! The deadline for the acceptance speeches is on December 30.

On December 31, there will be a special results post featuring the winners and their acceptance speeches! The winners will receive a button to go on their awards page, a shoutout, and of course, glory and bragging rights!

I’m so excited for the awards to begin and I can’t wait to see all of your awesome nominations and the winners! Here are the categories:

2

The Best Doll Blog Award is for your favorite doll blog! Last year’s winner was Madison @ Delightful World of Dolls, so she cannot be nominated or win this category.

3

The Best Book Blog award is awarded to the book blog that posts book reviews, book tags, bookstagram photos, TBRs, and more bookish things! Last year, May @ Forever and Everly won this category, so she cannot be nominated for or win this category.

4

The Best Lifestyle Blog Award goes to the blogger who posts about his or her lifestyle! well duh Emmie it’s a lifestyle blog Since last year’s winner was Clara @ Clara & Co, she cannot be nominated for or win this category.

5

For the Best New Blog Award, you can only nominate a blog that is less than 1 years old and has not had a blogaversary! This is a brand-new, never seen before category that was not featured last year, so you can nominate anything and anyone that has been blogging for under a year!

6

Do you know a blog with a gorgeous design that catches your eye every time? Or maybe your favorite blogger’s layout is clean, graceful, and easy to navigate? Then this award goes to them! If the blog was designed by someone other than the author or owner, the credit goes to them. Last year’s winner was Enni @ On the Wings of a Dream, so she can’t win or be nominated for this category.

7

No matter the length or style, if you know a blog with an interesting, fitting tagline, make sure to nominate them! Charis @ Charis Rae was this category’s winner last year, so she cannot be nominated for or win the Creative Tagline Award.

9

Ever witnessed a super-awesome stop-motion with awesome sets, great storyline, fantastic character voices, and smooth stop-motion photography? Then nominate that stop motion for the Hollywood-worthy Stopmotion Award! Last year’s winner, The Goodbye @ Delightful World of Dolls, cannot win or be nominated for this category.

10

The Best Photography Award is given to that blog with fantastic photos that have great lighting, setups, colors, and quality! Last year’s winner was Clara @ Clara & Co, so she cannot be nominated for or win this category.

11

This award goes to a well-thought out, fantastically photographed, interesting photo story series! Last year’s winner was Heads Up @ Delightful World of Dolls, so that photostory series cannot be nominated for or win this category.

12The Best Photostory Award is for a one-part photostory featuring any type of doll, topic, or photography style! Last year’s winner was Hope in the Blooms @ AG Doll Awesome, so that photostory cannot be nominated for or win again for this category.

13

This Creative Craft Tutorial is for a fabulous and clear tutorial! Last year How to Make an AG Slow Cooker @ Smile and Craft AG won this category, so it cannot be nominated for or win this category.
15

And now for the highest honor an Emmie Awards nominee can receive…The Blog of the Year award! Last year’s fabulous winner was Clara @ Clara and Co, so she cannot be nominated for or win this category!
