How Many of Australia's Top 33 Digital Influencers Do You Follow?

Another day, another dollar. Another year, another awards ceremony. Pedestrian's teamed up with Intel to once again highlight the sublime talent of Australia's blogosphere. The competition this year is on a whole new level – pitting the best-of-the best against each other. With the help of Intel, we're curating content that'll explore all things blogging. This will include things like tips on how to create your own platform, and how to deal with the h8rs. Get keen, y'all. It's set to be, like, the best year yet (here's hoping). 

As you might have seen, Pedestrian.TV's hit double digits and we're totally psyched to start going through puberty over the next few years. 

For five of those ten glorious years, we've been throwing a shindig to celebrate Australia's blogging and social influencing elite. 


Pedestrian's living proof that if you own your noise on interwebs, put in the hard-yards and manage to build a following (while every man and their French Bulldog's out there having a crack at winning cyber space over) then you've well and truly earned the right to a bit of recognition. 

In a nutshell; we appreciate their hustle.

So, without further ado, we'd like to introduce:



This year we're shaking things up (there's been a few times we’ve been around this track, so it's not just gonna happen just like that).  We're stacking the crème de la crème of Australia's social influencers against one another for the ultimate show-down, with their efforts scrutinised by a panel of judges whose infamy has been established by their contributions within the industry.  The nominees will experience the highest of highs, and the lowest of lows. Yep, 2015's Blogster Awards will be one for the history books, kids. Here are the categories we've whisked up this year, as well as the respective nominees.
