African Blogger Awards 2016 Entries Open

Africa. Over 50 countries. Over a billion people. But who are the real influencers? The best bloggers? The most fabulous Facebookers? The most interesting instagrammers? The utterly unique YouTubers and truly terrific tweeters? You could be one of them

​Best of the Best: The African Blogger Awards Return!

The African Blogger Awards aim to recognise the best of the best amongst bloggers and social media influencers Facebookers, Tweeps, Instagrammers, Youtubers...

The awards use objective metrics to determine online and social influencers’ real reach and influence through data analysis. Whether you talk Fashion & Beauty, Sports, Politics, Technology & Gadgets, Youth Culture or whatever, as long as people listen, you have a shot. Fame and glory could be yours!

Entry is free, but entrants are required to register their blog (or Twitter account, YouTube profile, etc.) on Webfluential.

The platform will measure these metrics, among others:

  • Reach: the size of an influencer’s audience

  • Resonance: how widely the content an influencer shares reaches outside of their own community

  • Relevance: the response from the influencer’s community (likes, retweets, comments, shares, etc.)

Winners for each category will receive a web banner announcing their achievement that can be used throughout their social networks, and also a commemorative trophy –  and fame and glory, of course.

Entries close at midnight (GMT+2) on 19 April 2016, and results will be announced on 3 June 2016.

Still here? Really? You should be posting, sharing and tweeting right now...get to it!
