Ghana Blogging & Social Media Awards 2016 Winners To Be Announced May 20

2015 was a year of national, regional and global events, much of which was captured in the Ghanaian digital space. Be it a blog post, tweet, meme, video, photo or podcast, each played a role in weaving together our collective history and memory of a very eventful year. Equally important are the people behind the screens – the bloggers, influencers and netizens who create the digital threads that keep us informed and connected.

This year’s event will be the fourth of its kind since 2012 and will focus on telling stories that matter. Drawing inspiration from our predecessors, we converge “by the fireside” to explore the concept of Ghana 3.0 and key issues of our time – what it means to be Ghanaian, the 2016 presidential election, our common struggle for development, the Ghana we want. Co-hosted by spoken word artiste Poetra Asantewa and 2015 Ehlakasa Slam King 100%, the event will feature performances by soul singer Cina, afro-jazz artiste Faith Bekoe, and DJ & Funky Professor Kobby Graham.

With improvements in Internet connectivity, costs and infrastructure, we approach an exciting era of possibility for connecting, sharing, and influencing Ghana and Africa’s narrative. Our narrative. Indeed, many across the continent are already leading the way in exploring the fringes of that possibility through innovative storytelling, including our six judges: Nana Kofi Acquah (Ghana), Kathleen Bomani (Tanzania), Edith Brou (Ivory Coast), Kennedy Kachwanya (Kenya), Ndambaw Kama (Senegal) and Emeka Okoye. We hope to inspire others to follow suit and push boundaries on how we tell our stories.

Equally important are the companies and organizations that support digital content creators and initiatives. We are proud to be organizing this event in collaboration with our partners, sponsors and supporters namely: PlanIT Ghana, US Embassy Ghana, Circumspecte, TV3, Now Available Africa, Nescafé, Google, Auntie Oboshie, Magic Unltd, Kawa Moka, Wanjo Foods, 3FM, AccraWeDey, threesixtyGh, Black Bamboo Photography, Ghanyobi, Team Black Image, Neem Grill, Ashesi University and the Chartered Institute of Bankers.
