There are always so many great nominations for the Blog of the Year contest, and this year was no different! We had hundreds of nominations to narrow down, and the task was no easy feat.

Once again, blogs were nominated in four categories: Elementary, Secondary, Rising Star, and Wild Card.

The AOE review committee has narrowed down each category to just 9 finalists.

Blogs were chosen based on the following criteria: Quality of Content, Frequency of Posts, Reader Involvement, and Overall Look and Feel.


Now it’s your chance to help decide which Art Ed blogs deserve the top spots!

Voting Open


Voting is open January 19th, 2016 through 9pm CST on January 22nd, 2016. Winners will be announced on AOE on Sunday, January 24th. Please cast your vote only one time. Repetitive votes from the same IP address will not be counted. Thanks!
