Announcing the Winners of the 8th Annual JDR Industry Blogger Awards!


We are excited to present the winners of the 8th Annual JDR Industry Blogger Awards! We had another incredible contest this year and, as always, we were inspired by the many talented bloggers who participated with enthusiasm.

Architecture winner Samantha Markham of The Aspiring Architect plans to donate a portion of her winnings by holding a contest on her own blog for architecture students and aspiring young professionals. The winner(s) will each receive a portion of the prize money to help pay for educational expenses. Samantha said she had an amazing outpouring of support from family, friends, followers, and co-workers during the contest, “I was super excited to be a part of the JDR Industry Blogger Awards. Just to be nominated was a huge honor! My readers were also very excited and supportive. The contest introduced me to bloggers in my field and in other professions.”

The winner in the Interior Design category, Tina of The Enchanted Home, is donating her $500 prize to an important, and personal, cause: “I will donate my winnings to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. A relative is there now, only 11 years old, being treated for leukemia. I cannot think of a better way to spend this money than to help fight this horrible disease.”

Remodeling category winner, Jeffrey Johnson of Jeffrey Design, thought the contest was exciting and relevant. “Bloggers have a passion for sharing stories with their audience,” Jeffrey said, “We should be advocates for supporting other bloggers and how we all encourage, inspire, and energize our readers.”

There is one winning blog in each category: Architecture, Construction Business, Remodeling, Interior Design, Green, and Microblog. Winners receive a $500 prize and a JDR Blogger Awards Winner badge for display on their blog.
