The Blogosphere Awards are back, and we’re so excited to be shortlisted. 

The Blogosphere Awards 2021 celebrate the best influencers and best influencer brand campaigns over the past 12 months. 

There are twenty-eight categories in the awards this year, and we’re delighted to have been recognised alongside some amazing agencies and creators. 

The Fifth’s talent agency The Fifth Talent is nominated for Talent management company of the year and The Fifth Talent’s incredible creators Nicole Ocran and Emma Slade Edmondson are up for the Podcast of the year award for their amazing podcast Mixed Up. 

The Mixed Up podcast is for mixed race people everywhere and for anyone looking for a deeper insight into race and identity. It is hosted by sustainability consultant and creative director Emma Slade Edmondson, and Nicole Ocran, writer and co-founder of The Creator Union.

The show is about straddling two worlds and multiple identities. Now more than ever, it feels like people of mixed heritage are seeking out their space to talk about their lived experiences. But despite searching, Nicole and Emma could find very little to relate to, so they decided to make something they would have appreciated hearing.

Speaking about the nominations, Group MD and Founder of The Fifth Oliver Lewis says: “I’m immensely proud to be shortlisted at the Blogosphere awards 2021 for Talent Management company of the year. What a year it has been. Huge credit, congratulations and thanks to The Fifth Talent Director Katie Wallwork, and Talent Managers Olivia Francis, Summer Swerner and Keys Pownall for continuing to lead in this industry with their professionalism, integrity, incredible hard work and always putting their talent first.

“Also congratulations to two of our Fifth Talent fam Nicole Ocran and Emma Slade Edmondson for their Mixed up podcast. An absolute triumph that has rightly been recognised”.
