Vote for Emmeline!

Today I accidentally found out that my blog’s been nominated for ‘Best Arts & Culture Blog’ in the Blog North Awards 2014. It’s been an overwhelming week.  Just as everything’s feeling super-low I get slapped in the face with so much good news - thanks to everyone for the support!

Okay, so here’s the deal - with this award it’s partly vote-based, so if you’re feeling lovely please do a gal a favour and vote for this blog here www.blognorthawards.com. As I’m sure you can guess I would appreciate that immensely.

As mentioned I accidentallyfound out I’m in the shortlist via my blog traffic, so I’ve missed three days of voting - so every click counts!

Big news, guys! I’ve been chosen as a finalist in the 15 for 15 award for self-employed businesses.  
I’ve written about the nomination, and why freelancers are important too in this new blog post - http://emmelineillustration.blogspot.co.uk/2014/09/15-for-15-award-finalist.html
'Enterprising individuals right across Britain are starting brand new businesses every day.

Most of them aren’t well connected entrepreneurs launching trendy startups and boasting millionaire backers. They are independent, enterprising people making the brave choice to go it alone because they want control of their own destiny.


There are now almost five million self-employed people working in the UK and that number is growing all the time. They are some of the brightest and most independent minds in business and 15 for 15 aims to give the most promising among them a little helping hand.


That’s why we are looking for the independent professionals who are set for big things in 2015. We want to find fifteen independent minds who truly represent the diversity, enterprise and bravery of Britain’s self-employed.’

So Festival Number 6 was beyond magical last weekend. Such a place! I have serious post-festival blues, so threw myself into capturing the spirit through illustration.  New blog post up about it all here.
