Vote in the bCreator Awards 2024

Memorable moments from our 10th year, 2023! 

We’ve been enjoying a restorative Christmas break after what has been a monumental and memorable 2023, our tenth year

Still filled with festive cheer, we recently got together to reflect on the year just past and share plans and ideas for 2024.

In 2023 we hosted 4 live events, released series 6 of our industry podcast, issue 25 of our magazine featuring Creator of the Year Winner Jack Edwards and rebranded from Blogosphere to bCreator™. It’s safe to say our feet hardly touched the ground as we moved at pace from one event to the next.

Our Rebrand

2023 began with our Issue 25 cover shoot with Jack Edwards and putting everything in place for our rebrand from Blogosphere to bCreator. As it was our 10th year and the industry has evolved so much since the early years of 2013, we decided the time was right to rebrand from Blogosphere to bCreator™, maintaining our legacy ‘b’ logo and making a nod to that as a creator you can be whoever you want to be! 

The announcement came in March, just before our first live event, and more recently we got confirmation that bCreator™ is now officially trademarked!

bCreator™ Travel Show

On the 29th March we were delighted to bring the travel creator community together in Shoreditch for a unique and premium showcase experience with brands TUI, Amazon Influencers and YouTube in attendance. We also recorded two live podcast episodes with Hand Luggage Only and Brontë King (Founder of Gals Who Travel) and released these episodes as part of series 6 which began in April.

In April we officially kicked off the bCreator Awards by opening the nominations via our website with headline sponsor Virgin Voyages. We also, for the first time, announced our special bCreator Committee, a who’s-who of the creator industry in the UK, who had a special job of judging categories for this year’s bCreator Awards.

Issue 25 launch party

In June we launched issue 25 of our magazine with a special rooftop party for Jack Edwards, the cover star who won the main creator Award in 2022.

We also brought the creator community together again at the end of the month for our Health & Wellbeing Show with brands like Lovehoney, CoppaFeel! and Meta showcasing to meet creators in person, alongside a packed schedule of panel talks and presentations.

And finally, on October 10th, in the month when bCreator launched 10 years ago, we hosted our biggest event to date at the iconic Roundhouse with Virgin Voyages and supporting headline sponsor YouTube. We were overwhelmed by the support, feedback and love people had for this event, it was definitely a highlight reading through the messages, posts and stories. In fact, we had over 500 of them to go through!

We want to thank all the creators who attended our events, everyone who has purchased a magazine, ticket or supported us in any way over the years, plus the wonderful brands and agencies we’ve worked with. There are just too many to mention but we are incredibly grateful to be here, 10 years on and as passionate as ever for this evolving and rapidly expanding creator economy in the UK.

Happy New Year!
