The Design Bloggers Hall of Fame Awards, which recognize blogging excellence, began in 2012.
During an initial nomination period, the top five blogs in each category were determined through a combination of public nominations and a panel of expert judges. The public then voted on their favorite among the five finalists; the winners were determined based on a combination of the ratings of the expert panel of judges and the public vote.
