Deutsche Welle Hosts Blog and Website Contest

Publish Date: Feb 22, 2016

Deadline: Mar 03, 2016

Deutsche Welle is accepting entries for its Bobs contest - Best of Online Activism.

Submissions are open to anyone using the internet and don’t cost a single penny.


All formats are welcomed, so please submit blogs, podcasts, social network profiles, platforms and projects. It's required that everything entered in the contest is available to the public and sticks to the other rules and criteria it’s outlined.


The contest’s languages are: Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, English, French, German, Hindi, Indonesian, Persian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Turkish, and Ukrainian. Anything submitted to The Bobs needs to be in one of these 14 languages.


Anyone using the Internet is allowed to submit sites and projects to The Bobs. Please remember, once you’ve entered the contest, you’re in. The number of times a site is suggested to The Bobs does not influence whether it reaches the contest’s second stage.


There are four multilingual categories at #thebobs16 – these are the places where projects from around the world compete for laurels as the winners of the Jury Award, handed out by an independent, international jury, and Users’ Award, whose winners will be decided in an online vote. Here are the four multilingual categories:

  • Social Change
  • Tech for Good
  • Arts and Culture
  • Citizen Journalism


All your submissions are presented to our international and independent jury who with the help of Deutsche Welle staff create a list of nominees that would be presented here on March 31. As soon as the list reaches the public, online voting to determine the winners of the User Award in each category will begin.


All the winners of The Bobs 2016 will be announced in Berlin in early May. A ceremony for the winners of the Jury Awards and the Freedom of Speech Award will take place on June 14 in Bonn, Germany, as part of the Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum.
