Curvy Blog Award Winners 2014

Revealed: The winners of our Curvy Blog Awards 2014

With the help of our fabulous fashion panel and the thousands of you who cast your votes, we can exclusively reveal who scooped
this year's covetable gongs:

Community award

Community Award

We asked and you told us. With an overwhelming amount of votes, we can reveal Elizabet was the blogger you chose to walk away with this year's Community Award. The Spanish fashionista launched her amazing blog Vistete Que Vienen Curvas in 2011 and has been inspiring her loyal followers with everything from unique trend reports, to fabulous styling tips ever since. We for one, are hooked.

Best fashion award

Best Curvy Fashion Blog Award

With so many amazing entries, whittling them down to just one was no mean feat. Having said that, our expert fashion panel were bowled over by Gabi Gregg and her blog GabiFresh. The LA-based blogger's premium photography shots, insightful articles and gorgeous product edits, were just some of the attributes they felt, made it stand out from the rest. Her successful swimwear collection also got a special mention, for having such an amazing impact within the fashion industry.

Newcomer award

Best New Curvy Fashion Blog Award

Every second, two new blogs are launched somewhere in the world (yes, really), which means these days you need to be pretty special to stand out. Cue, the amazing ladies behind The Skinny and the Curvy one. Close-knit friends Sophia a size 8 and Verena size 20 from Germany, have made it their sole mission to create outfits that inspire, no matter what your shape – making them a huge hit with our fashion panel. If their gorgeous outfit posts are anything to go by, we’d say they’re definitely succeeding.

A huge thanks to everyone who voted and supported their favourite blogs. Until next year…

The Awards

Are you part of the new movement?
The one that's led by liberated bloggers who happen to be plus size but who are defined by their attitude and not their dress size.
The movement that has not only stepped up to celebrate and provide plus sized women with fashion inspiration in the absence of fashion media recognition but is now setting the agenda.

Then we want to hear from you.
This year the Curvy Blog Awards are bigger and better than ever to reflect the growing influence of curvy fashion bloggers. There are three Curvy Blog Award categories: the Community Award, Best Curvy Fashion Blog Award and Best New Curvy Fashion Blog Award. That's three opportunities to win.

And as well as providing great and well deserved industry and community recognition, there are fabulous prizes on offer.
Our panel of international judges includes top editors and leading supermodel Ashley Graham,
and for the first time you also get to decide on a winner.
You can nominate yourself, another blogger you admire, or ask someone to put your name forward on your behalf. The closing date for nominations is November 16 and winners will be announced on December 5.

Community award

Community Award

Your chance to celebrate those making a difference. During a two week voting period (November 17 to November 30), we will be asking you to vote for your favourite plus size fashion blog. The blog with the most votes by the community will be the winner.

Best fashion award

Best Curvy Fashion Blog Award

Among all submissions, our panel of awesome judges will be looking for this year's best fashion blogger. A fresh voice and a savvy sense of style is a must. They will also be looking at how well you engage with your audience.

Newcomer award

Best New Curvy Fashion Award

This award celebrates those new to blogging, and our panel of judges will be looking for the future star of the plus size blogosphere.
Could this be you?
