The Fifth Talent took home the Talent Management Agency of the Year award at the Blogosphere Awards 2021.

The Blogosphere Awards are a celebration of the amazing talent that this industry has to offer. Without the talent who have given us their trust, confidence and support this last year, we wouldn’t have been able to do it so thank you to them and everybody who voted for us.

After the Blogosphere Awards weren’t able to take place in person last year, we were delighted that the industry could come together to celebrate the achievements of the last 12 months in person.

The Fifth MD and Founder Oliver Lewis says: “I’m overwhelmed and just so proud of the team. Last time we were at the Blogosphere Awards in 2019, we were wet behind the ears and just excited to be there. Today we have arrived thanks to the undeniable talent of Katie Wallwork, Keys Pownall, Summer Swerner, Olivia Francis and everyone in the Fifth Fam past and present. Huge congrats to all the winners and to Alice Audley for bringing back such an important celebration of our industry. A huge triumph!”.

As if that wasn’t enough, The Fifth Talent’s creators Nicole Ocran, who is a writer and co-founder of The Creator Union, and sustainability consultant and creative director Emma Slade Edmondson also won the Podcast of the Year Award. Their Mixed Up podcast is for mixed race people everywhere and for anyone looking into a deeper insight on race and identity.

They say “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, we could find very little to relate to. We decided to make something we would have appreciated hearing’.

A big congratulations to all of the Blogosphere Awards winners and nominees.
