UK Money Bloggers and Quidco are really pleased to reveal the finalists for the 2017 SHOMO awards.
The SHOMO awards celebrate the best in money blogging, recognising all-rounders as well as niches as different as investing and frugal food! Seventy different blogs were nominated for 12 different categories. You can find out who made the shortlists below.
Categories are listed alphabetically, as are the finalists within the category.

Our final shortlist is to acknowledge the great work done by non-independent blogs – essentially the people who weren’t eligible for the other categories because they have a big team behind them or are part of a large business or brand.
|Best company or brand money blog, sponsored by Quidco|
The shortlists were produced by the SHOMOs awards committee, chaired by Karyn Fleeting, aka Miss Thrifty. Any committee members nominated for a category were not involved in the selection process for that particular award.
There are also additional awards with the shortlists yet to be announced, and we’ll share more details on these later in the summer.
