Voting Opens for the The Kenyan Blog Awards 2013

So the Bloggers Association of Kenya has been busy organizing the 2013 Kenyan bloggers awards. The awards have definitely grown from last year, with sponsorship from Samsung, Nokia and Phillips. These are technology companies who are always keen to identify with bloggers online, and we hope in the future other companies in fashion, agriculture etc can embrace this opportunity to encourage the growth of local content online.

The nominees for the Kenyan blog awards have been selected by a BAKE esteemed panel of judges from the submissions received from the public. Voting is now live on www.bloggers.or.ke/voting and will close on midnight on the 1st of May 2013.

The winners will be announced at a gala event to be held on the evening of the 4th of May 2013 at the Southern Sun Hotel in Westlands.

Please head to the www.bloggers.or.ke/voting and vote for your favorite blog!

And if you’re asking no, I’m not in the list of nominated blogs because I work too closely with the bloggers association of Kenya and it would be a conflict of interest πŸ™‚
