BAKE Awards 2017

129

Since 2012, the BAKE (Bloggers’ Association of Kenya) have consistently awarded Kenyan bloggers within different categories. Bogging has grown to be one of the most popular hobbies and even carers. The BAKE Awards has grown to have a bigger following each year and more and more people voting in their favourite blog. This year, BAKE recorded 10,000 submissions. This year two categories were added to the Awards’ list that is, Women and Girls’ Empowerment and Social Issues and Active Citizenship.

From some of the reactions on social media, a number of bloggers didn’t even know they were nominated until their fans and readers alerted them.
