Party Time Wins BOB Award


Our own Party Time site is the proud winner of the “best English weblog” BOB award from Deutsche Welle, Germany’s international public broadcaster. The BOB, or “Best of the blogs” awards, now in their fifth year, the contest considers blogs from all over the world. A jury of international journalists and bloggers decided.

Our company is quite impressive. This year’s top prize went to Generaci√≥n Y, a Cuban blog written by Yoani Sanchez. According to the BOBs award site, “Sanchez can’t even post her own entries to the blog. Despite the challenges she has to overcome, she’s managed to keep in contact with her readers and create a huge international community around her work.”

The BOB “Reporters Without Borders” award went to two blogs. The first is written by Zeng Jinyan, the wife of an imprisoned Chinese human rights activist Hu Jia. The second is 4equality, a Persian blog that fights for women’s rights in Iran.
