Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to sponsor 2 categories at 2017 BAKE Awards

The Bloggers Association of Kenya (BAKE) has announced the addition of two new categories to the BAKE Awards 2017. The two new categories have been added in collaboration with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

The two new categories are:

  • Women and Girls’ Empowerment
  • Social Issues and Active Citizenship

The addition of the two new categories will bring the total number of categories to 23.

The Bill and Melinda Gates foundation will also support the Public Health category which was already existing. We are grateful to them for supporting the categories which will lead to the recognition of bloggers who are doing important work in highlighting important social issues.

This is the 6th BAKE Awards and it started on January 9th 2017 with the launch of the submission phase and will culminate in the awarding of the winners at a gala event on May 13th 2017.

The entry submission phase was extended to 10th March. New entries can be submitted here.
