Polls open until May 3


We want to count your votes for the best in online activism at The Bobs! You have until May 3 at 9 a.m. German time (0700 GMT) to cast your ballots. Read about the nominees and cast your votes for the People’s Choice Awards in 14 languages.

Cheaters don’t have a chance

Over the course of this year’s voting, which began on April 9, we have noticed some irregularity and have removed a number of invalid votes. This has led to changes in the rankings in some categories. We would like to point out that we check each vote’s validity as soon as it is cast and update the online vote tallies every few minutes. You can read a more detailed rundown of voting rules on the Rules page.

Jury decides winner of three categories

The winners of the Social Change, Privacy & Security, and Arts & Media categories will be decided by The Bobs’ international jury members. The winners of these three categories will be invited to receive their award as part of the Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum (22-24 June) in Bonn, Germany.

Again, our congratulations to all of the nominees.
