2014 BlogPaws Nose-To-Nose Award trophies

What the Finalists have already won:

All Finalists receive a Blogger Full Conference Pass to the BlogPaws 2018 Conference. They’ll also get Red Carpet treatment and recognition at the Awards Ceremony on Friday evening, and of course the chance to be announced as the Winner of their category!

The Winners will receive the coveted Nose-to-Nose trophy on stage during the live-streamed awards gala, honored status among their peers, media attention, and a package of other prizes TBD.

These are the only pet industry awards in which pet bloggers and social media influencers are judged on the expertise, performance, and creativity of their entry. Each category is judged by a distinguished panel of professionals and not by popular vote. The influence of pet bloggers is growing and the BlogPaws community is leading the way.

And your 2018 Nose-to-Nose Awards Finalists are:
