Announcing The 2014 BLDG 25 Blog Love Awards!

It’s that time of year again! We are so excited to announce the 2nd annual BLDG 25 Blog Love Awards! Last year’s awards were such a success that we just had to continue the tradition! What drives us here at Free People are the people, places, and sights that we see everyday. Inspiration awaits everywhere, we find it across the globe, and sometimes even a mere step out of our front door. Through the web and other forms of social media, we have easy access to all things creative and all things inspiring. Our universe is full of it, and we want to honor our most-loved of the year. We need your help, so this is the official call for 2014 Love Award nominees!

Check out the categories below — we have a new one this year! — and send us your submissions any of the following ways:

  • Leave a comment on this post, including a link to where we can read more about the nominee.
  • Email to share a story or image.
  • Tweet @freepeople and be sure to include the hashtag #FPloveawards.
  • Post an instagram and tag @freepeople and include the hashtag #FPloveawards.

love awards categories

On Wednesday, November 5th, a Free People committee will narrow the submissions down to 3 finalists for each category.  These will then be posted on the blog the following week, and we will have a 1-week period of voting!

We can’t wait to see your submissions!
