The moment you (and we!) have been waiting for is finally here. This year, we received over 23,000 nominations across 11 categories, and we're excited to announce the 66 finalists for the 2018 SAVEUR Blog Awards! Some of them are familiar favorites, and others are brand new to blogging but are bringing audiences a fresh perspective on recipes, travel, and Instagramming. Our finalists this year span the globe from Brooklyn to Cape Town, and we're excited to meet all of them in Memphis this November.

Stay tuned for your chance to vote!
