European Cybersecurity Blogger Awards – 9th June 2021 at 6pm BST


The European Cybersecurity Blogger Awards recognise the best bloggers, vloggers, tweeters and podcasters in the industry. Attended by the dedicated and brilliantly talented cybersecurity blogger community, CISOs and a number of other industry VIPs, the annual awards are an unmissable networking opportunity for anyone in the know.

This year, despite Infosecurity Europe going back to an in-person event, we’ve got the sense that not everyone will be ready to jump back into crowded venues. So, we’ve decided that the event will be run virtually again this year (hopefully for the last time!) But the good news is, there will still be cocktails to make (and drink!) and there’s no queuing at the bar!

It will take place on the 9th of June at 6 pm BST and we aim for around 120 attendees, which in the past have included the likes of Troy Hunt, the creator of Have I Been Pwned and other well-known bloggers like Graham Cluley, Carole Theriault and Geoff White.

Last year, it was one of the first events that Eskenzi PR ran virtually and it turned out to be a fantastic event!  Everyone who registered in Europe was sent a cocktail kit so that we could finish off the eve with a cocktail making session provided by Stir Crazy.


For those of you attending the virtual event on the 9th of June at 6pm BST, you can find the pamphlet as well as drinks menu below!



The last 18 months have been difficult for so many of us, but for many children, the past year has brought difficult changes that none of us could have imagined. In 2020-2021 Childline answered over 200,000 calls from children needing somewhere to turn, and this is why the European Cybersecurity Blogger Awards are proud to support Childline at this year’s event.

Help us raise funds for this vital service by donating on our JustGiving page. Alternatively, you can enter our wonderful prize draw hereor by scanning the QR code – and stand the chance to win a delicious cocktail kit for 6 people delivered straight to your door. The draw ends at 12pm on Thursday 10th June and we will contact the winner once it has closed. All funds raised going directly to Childline.

How to Nominate

You can nominate yourself or your favourite blogger. We will ask the following questions:

  • Why does the entry deserve to win the category?
  • Do you have any audience/follower figures and a rough geographical breakdown? (i.e. where is your audience mostly based?)
  • Top three posts from the past year (links included)
  • How long has the blog/podcast etc. been in action? Give us a brief history and the aims/objectives?
  • How is it financed, if at all?
  • Testimonials

While these questions are all optional, the more complete the submission, the better!

Nominations are now closed.

If you are interested in taking part as a sponsor or have any questions, feel free to get in touch!
