In addition to our totally incredible 20 Under 20 list, we’re bringing you the second installment of our Prospie Awards: TP’s Blogger Awards!

Here at TP, we’re obviously gigantic fans of blogging and new media (and just the Internet in general). And of course, we want to reward young people who’ve been blogging away! Thus, we’ve created our Blogger Awards to recognize students for their incredible blogging efforts. And who gets to make sure the coolest young bloggers get  acknowledged? You do, by nominating them! (Also, you can see our winners from last year here.)

Whom should I nominate for TP’s Blogger Awards?

The only qualification is that the person needs to currently be either a high school student or college undergraduate, but other than that, we’re up for looking at any blog. However, in case you’re looking for a little inspiration, here are some blog categories that we’re particularly interested in:

  • Fashion/Style/Beauty
  • Lifestyle
  • DIY
  • Music
  • Graphics/Art/Design
  • Photography
  • Fitness/Health
  • Athletics
  • College
  • Miscellaneous (anything that doesn’t fit into the categories above!)

Important: We’re specifically looking for kids who deserve recognition but haven’t gotten it yet! We want to showcase the next big up-and-comers, the movers and shakers, as opposed to people who’ve already been honored by mainstream media.

What do I need to do to nominate someone for TP’s Blogger Awards?

It’s quite simple to nominate someone! Please fill out the nomination for HERE HERE HERE, or include the following pieces of information in a comment at the bottom of this post:

  • The blog URL and preferably the name (first and last, if possible) of the person who writes it.
  • 1-2 words about what kind of blog it is (music, fashion, lifestyle, college life, etc.).
  • 3-4 sentences about why this blog is awesome!

Additionally, if the blog is a collaboration between multiple people, that’s totally fine! We just ask that everyone involved be a current high school student or college undergraduate.

Note: Nominations must be made through the comment section of this post OR through the online form! We will not be accepting nominations that are emailed to us or posted on any of our social media pages.

How many people can I nominate?

You can nominate as many peeps as you want!

Can my nomination be anonymous?


Can I nominate myself?


What is the deadline to nominate someone?

We’ll be accepting nominations until Thursday, February 5th, at midnight EST.

When will TP’s Blogger Awards lists be announced?

The list will go live on February 19th, our official two-year anniversary date!
