How it all began

The AMARA Interior Blog Awards celebrates and engages with the most authoritative and respected bloggers in the interior blogging industry. Believing that bloggers are an integral part of the interior design community, the AMARA Team has worked closely with many of these talented individuals over the years and strive to give back to this vibrant community through the awards.

A concept first introduced in 2013, the awards include a series of phases throughout a three month period from nominations & voting, to shortlisting, and the project culminates in an annual awards ceremony attended by the shortlisted bloggers, sponsors and judges.

The first awards ceremony held in 2014 attracted much attention from the blogging industry with more blogs nominated than we could have imagined. Each year the campaign has grown in size and now in its seventh year, the 2020 awards will be even bigger still. Planning is well underway to ensure the awards ceremony boasts even more spectacular features than the previous years and you can keep up to date with all information, from the opening of nominations and voting, to the release of the shortlist on the Interior Blog Awards website.

This year's voting system will work a little differently. There will be one judge per category (excluding Bloggers' Choice, KLC x AMARA Student Interior Design & Lifetime Achievement Awards) and they will each be asked to select their favourite blogs in these categories during the voting stage. These choices will be combined with the final voting numbers, with the judge's score worth 70% and the public vote 30%, to give each blog an overall score. These scores will determine the shortlist and then all 10 judges will meet again on the Judging Day to select the winners.
