Every year, SAVEUR’s readers and editors gather around the warm glow of our computer screens to answer one question: Who’s making amazing stuff about food? Who’s writing the best stories, developing the best recipes, shooting the most jaw-dropping photos and video? These are the Blog Awards, our celebration of bloggers, cooks, photographers, and travelers who’ve taken to the web to tell stories and get us all excited to stand in front of the stove.

For this year’s Awards, our 8th (!!) annual, we’re making a special effort to recognize both the incredible longevity of blogging as a medium and new ways cooks are telling stories through food. Read on for information about nominations, voting, and more.
