What do paying bribes, the herd instinct, sending postcards, knitting and a sign-language assistant named Hugo have to do with each other?
They are all among the 364 nominees for top awards this year in The Bobs.
The Bobs’ expert jury members needed three weeks, but they managed to whittle down the more than 4,200 submissions to the contest to handful of nominees in each of the competition’s 34 categories and 14 languages.
Your turn has come
Now that the candidates have been decided, it’s up to you to give them a look over and vote for the ones you think are best. Remember, you can vote once per category per 24 hours. The blogs that get the most votes will win The Bobs Users’ Choice prize and knowing that people across the Internet love them. Polls open today and will close on May 7 when all the winners are announced at re:publica in Berlin.
Our jury gets to take a little break but shouldn’t get too comfortable. They will be traveling to Berlin at the beginning of May when we’ll be putting them in a comfy conference room (with plenty of coffee) to discuss and decide on the winners of the Jury Awards in the six main multilingual categories.
Winners of the Jury Awards will be invited to pick up their prizes at the Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum in Bonn, Germany, on June 17-19.
Now go have a look at this year’s nominees, cast a vote and let your voice be heard!
