Samsung East Africa will once be a part of the sponsors roster in the BAKE Awards. They will be sponsoring the Best Photography Blog and Best Lifestyle Blog categories.
This year’s Kenyan Blog Awards are set to be held this Saturday, May 14th, 2016 at Radisson Blu Hotel. Through the sponsorship, the category winners will be awarded with one of the 17 Gear VRs and Galaxy A Series smartphones.
Announcing the sponsorship, Samsung Electronics Vice President and Managing Director for East Africa, Hyung Jung Park, said smartphones and tablets had played a huge role in the distribution of digital content as evidenced by data from the Communication Authority of Kenya.
He added, “At Samsung, we have committed to developing products and services that will help contribute to a better world. Our innovations help people to be better connected and informed, and live easier and more secure lives, which creates positive change for people everywhere. And what better way to further this agenda than to partner with the Bloggers Association of Kenya that challenges and encourages Kenyans to develop digital content that resonates with Kenyans.”
The Samsung Gear VR has been a big hit globally as Samsung seeks to provide the virtual reality technology at an affordable price. Following the popularity of the Gear VR powered by Oculus, Samsung continued to expand its VR leadership with the announcement of the Gear 360 in February. The Galaxy A Series 2016 edition was also launched earlier this year, and available in three variants namely A3, A5 and A7.
We are excited to have Samsung partnering with us to sponsor the awards especially since this sponsorship means a great reward for the winning bloggers as well.
Our other sponsors are Safaricom (title sponsors), Xpose, EatOut Kenya (Best Food Blog), Coca Cola (Best Sports Blog) and Kenya Bankers Association – KBA (Best Business Blog).
