It’s your turn! Our international jury put together a list of the 154 nominees for The Bobs 2014. Now you can look at the finalists in all 14 languages and have until May 7 to vote for your favorites. You decision will determine who wins the People’s Choice Awards.
We’d like to take a moment to thank our fabulous jury members for their hard work – The Bobs wouldn’t be possible without them. They sorted through the list of over 3,000 submissions and found the most impressive, creative projects and again this year we’re thrilled to have excellent finalists.
Ever heard of the Wool War One?
With commemorations for its centenary happening, everyone has, of course, heard of the World War One. But what about Wool War One? That’s the name a French knitter has given to her project in the Most Creative and Original category. Other nominees include The Intercept, where revelations from former NSA contractor NSA Edward Snowden are being reported and made public. There’s also the censorship circumvention tool Lantern.
The Bobs is in 14 languages, but you don’t need to be a mega-polyglot to see what’s happening in another language – the team here has translated descriptions of all the nominees so you can take a trip around the world of online activism.
Simple voting rules
Have a look at the nominees then vote for your favorites. Between now and May 7, you can vote to decide on the winners of the People’s Choice Awards once per category per 24 hours. If you need it, there’s more information in the Rules.
While you’re voting, our jury members will be working to decide the winners of the Jury Awards when they meet in Berlin in May.
All of the winners of The Bobs 2014 will be announced on May 7. Jury Award winner will also be invited to pick up their prize at a ceremony that will be part of the Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum on June 30.
