The move comes as blogger portal Haynet announce that long term sponsors Equestrian PR & Social Media Marketing Agency MirrorMePR, will be taking over running the Equestrian Awards while the founder of the original awards, Haynet, will move forward separately with the Countryside Awards.
Both judges will, however, still be involved in judging both sets of the awards, and as Sam Hobden, MD of Haynet and creator of the successful honours explains;
” We want to continue to grow the awards and develop them. After much discussion, it made more sense for us to split the awards and run them separately. There will be brand new categories this year within both sets of the awards and we will also have some exciting new developments to be announced.”
Ashley Rossiter, MD Of MirrorMePR, reveals one new element; the inclusion of vlogging going forward for both sets of awards;
“We are thrilled to include vloggers going forward, and to reflect this, the name of the awards has been revised. With video content continuing to be a strong medium in 2019, we feel the opportunity for expression, topic and discussion are there for both, and therefore they will be judged equally for the categories we will be revealing in due course.”
The new titles of the Awards are ‘Equestrian Blogger/Vlogger Of The Year Awards’ and Countryside Blogger Of The Year Award.
