It all started in early November 2012, when we asked you to nominate your favourite blogs for the first ITALY Magazine Blog Awards. Your response was amazing and led to a list of impressive winners in 2013 and to our populat series Blog of the Week!

If the 2013 award was a success, this year we were literally overwhelmed by the number of nominations, so the shortlist of blogs and blog posts per category got a little longer. We knew we could count on you to take the right decision and passed it on to you to vote your favourite blogs. Over 10.000 votes were cast and the results are now in.

We want to thank everyone who took the time to nominate and/or vote and, especially, all the amazing people out there that share their experiences on their blogs helping people to learn more about Italy and keep falling in love with ITALY! It goes without saying that we are all winners. We can’t wait to repeat the exercise next year! Now, without further ado here are the the winners of the 2014 ITALY Magazine Blog Awards - Bravi Tutti!
