When & Where
Black Weblog Awards
Black Weblog Awards was founded in 2005 to give recognition to Black
bloggers (and those of the African diaspora) which were largely
overlooked by other Internet award events online. What started out as a
barely-known event has now grown into an international showcase. With
participants from over 90 countries, the Black Weblog Awards stands out
as one of the most widespread Internet award events for Black bloggers.
To date, the Black Weblog Awards has recognized nearly 200 blogs in over 30 categories. The Awards has also been featured in several mainstream and online media outlets, including NPR, CNN, and others. Winners of the Black Weblog Awards have also went on to appear in other media outlets, like MSNBC, the Huffington Post, BET, and many others.
