Due to the overwhelming number of submissions we received this year, we have extended the judging phase of the BAKE Awards 2017 to 31st of March 2017. The nominees this year will nobe announced on April 3rd 2017 which will also coincide with the launch of the voting phase.
We made the decision to extend the judging phase in order to give the judges more time to go through the more than 10,000 blogs that were submitted into the competition this year.
The new dates for the awards are as follows:
1. Judging phase – March 11th 2017 to March 31st 2017
2. Online voting – April 3rd 2017 to May 9th 2017
3. Winners’ Gala Event – May 13th 2017
The submission phase was launched on January 9th 2017 and we have been accepting blog submissions in the 22 categories of the competition including Best Lifestyle, Human Rights, Women and Girl’s Emporwement and Social Issues and Active Citizenship categories which were introduced this year.
