Award Categories

Best Use of Media

Parents who use social media – YouTube, Instagram Stories, Facebook stories, Facebook Live, Periscope, Podcast or similar to share their experiences. They don’t have to have a blog site.

Blog Post with Biggest Impact

Blog post written within 12 months of the nominations opening which has made an impact. It could have made you laugh, cry or take action but it stays with you long after reading it.


This category recognises excellent newcomers. A person who started blogging in the 12 months before nominations opened.

Truth About SEND

This category celebrates bloggers who write about the reality of SEND. Someone who doesn’t just share the good times or the bad, but someone you can relate to.

Making a Difference

BAPS began to celebrate SEND bloggers and raise awareness of additional needs. This category recognises those blogs and bloggers parents feel make a difference – whether this is in an active campaign style or a quieter, but equally needed way.

Bloody Awesome Parent Award

Someone who doesn’t blog but deserves recognition for what they do or have done. It could be the mum who runs a support group, a dad who set up an inclusive sports club, or parents who set up a much needed free school or have been working on behalf of parents in the background for years.

Travel & Accessibility

A blogger who writes about travelling and/or accessibility who shared advice and tips on making the world accessible. Perhaps your favourite SEND blogger works with venues and events to ensure they are more accessible, or they may share handy hints to make your day-to-day life easier.

Educating Education

This category is open to both parents and non-parents. Whether you want to celebrate a SENCO or teacher who goes above and beyond or a fellow home-schooler who shares tips and advice, this award is for anyone who makes parents realise there is hope for their child’s education.

Community Support

Which local groups make a difference to you and your families lives? The winner of this category could be a national group who in turn run regional groups, or smaller, parent-led groups who meet for coffee or have an online group for support.


This award celebrates those who write about health and wellbeing. This could be a blogger, website, or even a podcast that shares tips, advice or their experiences in the hope of helping others.
