NOMINATIONS WANTED FOR BEST FREE EXPRESSION BLOG
Through the BOBs' "Reporters Without Borders" Award, Deutsche Welle and RSF aim to support bloggers in countries where freedom of speech and press are limited. The award will go to a blog that takes a strong stance for freedom of information all over the world. Blogs can be published in Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Persian, Portuguese, Russian or Spanish.
"In many parts of the world, weblogs are one of the few possibilities for free speech," Deutsche Welle says.
You have until 30 September to submit blogs that you think best defend free expression. From these proposals, Deutsche Welle's international jury will narrow the field down to a shortlist. Then between 23 October and 15 November, users will be encouraged to vote online for their favourites.
Winners will be selected by both the online voting and the jury and will be announced at a public awards ceremony at the Museum for Communication on 15 November in Berlin, Germany.
