Help needed to run the #UKYABA2020!

We would love to be back celebrating our wonderful UKYA book-blogging community at YALC2020 for the UKYA Book-Blogger Awards 2020, but for that to happen we need your help.

YAShot is in a transition period so we don’t have a full team at the moment to run things. We need a group of volunteers willing to do 8-10 hours of work between March and June. It’s all digital and we’ll explain everything. You need to be meticulous, careful, honest and able to use spreadsheets. It’s all online and run through a shared GoogleDrive.

The key tasks are validating nominees and processing nominations. Then validating any voters who didn’t already nominate and processing all the votes. The validation criteria are all laid out and we have a group-chat for any odd cases or questions. There may also be a little bit of planning work for the celebrations on the night – sorting decorations, pulling together the running order and sample speeches, designing and proofing and ordering the trophies, discussing the judging process with the judging panel, etc.

There are patches of intense work and then patches of quiet, but if we can get a group together it shouldn’t be too onerous… and of course it’s all in the lovely cause of celebrating our fantastic bloggers and everything they bring to our community!

Drop us a line at with any questions or to volunteer. DMs open on Twitter.
