    Submissions welcome!

    Since 2004, The Bobs has honored bloggers, activists and journalists in 14 languages that champion the open exchange of ideas, freedom of expression and human rights on the Internet.

    The Bobs are the only global, international award honoring creative and brave projects online that cross language and cultural barriers and thereby showcases the best of what the ever-expanding World Wide Web has to offer.

    The competition’s languages are: Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, English, French, German, Hindi, Indonesian, Persian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Turkish, and Ukrainian.

    Additionally, an international jury will name three additional winners in the four multilingual categories Social Change, Tech for Good, Arts & Culture and Citizen Journalism. An online vote open to everyone on the Internet will determine the Users’ Award in each of the contest’s 18 categories.

    What languages are allowed?

    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.

    Who can make suggestions?

    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.

    What happens to the suggested sites?

    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 we’ll present 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.

    So what’s the plan?

    International jury? Online voting? Let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. First, it’s up to you to share your Internet heros with us. Who is doing important, inspirational and excellent work to promote online freedom and freedom of expression? We want to know!

    We’re looking forward to seeing what you share.
