The BAKE Awards 2017 Submission Phase is Now Open

Bloggers Association of Kenya is pleased to announce the launch of the BAKE Awards 2017.

As is the custom, this will also coincide with the launch of the submission phase of the competition.

The competition will begin today, January 9th 2017, and will culminate in the awarding of the winners at a gala event on May 13th 2017. The timeline this year is as follows:

  1. Submission phase – January 9th 2017 to February 10th 2017

BAKE has included a new category this year, i.e. Best Lifestyle Blog, which means that the total number of categories is now 20. After feedback from the blogging community, they have also introduced a rule that makes three-time (or more) winners in the awards ineligible to compete.

Last year’s contest saw 4,899 blogs being submitted and over 500,000 votes recorded. Women did well last year with bloggers such as Jamila El-Jabry (, Dr. Claire Kinuthia (, Maryann Waweru (, Rachael Muthoni (, Diana Kaluhi ( and Lucia Musau ( emerging winners.

Submissions will be accepted in 19 categories and a blog can only be submitted in one category that it fits best. There is an exception however, for new blogs (blogs set up in January 2016 onward) which can be submitted in the New Blog category and in another category in which they fit.
