InStyle’s Project 13 awards are back for 2016, celebrating the web’s coolest and most creative influencers from the worlds of fashion, beauty, craft, travel, food, fitness… and so much more.
We scoured YouTube, Instagram and pretty much the entire UK blog scene to narrow down 2016’s Project 13 nominees, taking account of their slick make-up tutorials, bucket list-worthy travel vlogs, inspirational Instagram campaigns, body positive blog posts and #foodporn that made our mouths water. These bloggers, vloggers and social media stars have amassed millions of followers over their time online, and they don’t show any signs of slowing down now.
From the household names (we’re looking at you, Ultimate Blogging Sensation) to the faces you’ll be seeing a lot more of over the next year, Project 13 is all about recognising the internet’s incredible creators and championing the next generation of influencers. They already teach us how to do a smokey eye from our bedroom, whip up gluten-free cupcakes in the comfort of our own kitchen and take us on holiday with their sun-soaked posts, so these awards are the least we can do.
Who won? YOU decided, and you voted in your thousands (over 50,000 of you, to be exact). You Tweeted, Instagrammed and Snapchatted your support for your favourite digital influencers, and trust us when we say they're grateful for it. So after two months of waiting, we can finally reveal who took the title in InStyle's Project 13 awards for 2016. Are you ready?
