Vote for your favourite free expression blog

The search is on for best blog! Reporters Without Borders (RSF) in conjunction with German media group Deutsche Welle wants you to vote for your favourite blog from anywhere in the world that defends free expression, as part of the Best of the Blogs Awards (the BOBs). Hurry, voting closes on 11 April.

This year, choose the winner in 17 categories, including the RSF award, which aims to support bloggers in countries where freedom of speech and press are limited - and goes to a blog that takes a strong stance for freedom of information all over the world.

There are also awards for Best Blog, Best Use of Technology for Social Good, Best Social Activism Campaign, Best Human Rights Blog, Best Video Channel, and best blog in each of the BOBs' 11 contest languages.

Jury members have already pared down the 2,101 blogs, social media projects and social good campaigns you submitted to the BOBS to just 11 finalists per category. Kudos to IFEX member the Alliance of Independent Journalists (AJI) in Indonesia, whose blog has made the cut for the RSF award.

So get voting! The blogs and projects with the most votes will be named the winners of the BOBs User Prizes on 12 April.
