Those interested in submitting their blogs for contention for this year’s BAKE Kenya Blog Awards have exactly a month to enter the contest as the submission deadline closes on Wednesday February 10, 2016.
On Friday January 8, BAKE announced that it has embarked on the annual process which culminates in the award of the winners in the various blog categories. After the entry submission phase, the judging process will then take place from February 11, 2016 to February 28, 2016 followed by the voting exercise from March 2, 2016 to April 30, 2016. This will culminate in the winners being announced during the awards gala on May 7, 2016.
“It is with pleasure that we announce the launch of the 5th Kenyan Blog Awards. Going by tradition, this also coincides with the official opening of the submission phase. Thereafter judges will decide the best 5 in each category before the public votes for their best in each category. This year, one new category, the Best Religious/Spirituality blog, has been added to bring the number of categories to 19,” said BAKE in a media announcement.
“In a clear indication of growth in the Kenyan blogging space over the years, we have seen a steady increase in the number of submissions with over 1800 blogs being submitted last year and over 150,000 votes recorded,” the statement added.
