The Bobs Awards recognize outstanding contributions to international freedom
of expression by honoring blogs, social media projects and websites. Since its inception in 2004, Deutsche Welle’s annual award for independent online media has established itself as the premier international and multilingual competition for
online campaigns and initiatives.
Through the Bobs Awards, DW honors work that connects cultures, creates transparency and builds online bridges capable of transcending language barriers.
At the same time, the Bobs Awards help illustrate the diversity of the international
blogosphere and add stimulus to the enriching public discussion about freedom
of expression in online media. Altogether the Bobs Awards include 14 languages:
Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, English, French, German, Hindi, Indonesian, Persian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Turkish and Ukrainian.
