BT emerged the winner for two years in a row amid stiff competition from other business blogs.

Business Today once again confirmed its dominance in online journalism when it was voted as the Business Blog of the Year 2019 during the Bloggers Association of Kenya (BAKE) Awards gala event on Saturday.

BT (businesstoday.co.ke) emerged the winner for two years in a row amid stiff competition from kenyanwallstreet.com, biznakenya.com, herbusiness.com and sokodirectory.com.

Other winners on the night, which was attended by some of Kenya’s top bloggers and influencers, included JustJoykendi.com, who won the overall Kenyan Blog of the Year category. Other winners included Lyraoko.com in the photography category, leotunapika.com in the food category, africancityplanner.com in the environmental category and fashionablestepmum.com in the fashion and style category.

This year’s competition began on February 12th 2019, where we accepted submissions in the various categories. Thereafter, a panel of judges selected the best 5 nominees from the successful submissions in each category. Voting was opened on May 7th, 2019 which culminated in the announcement of the winners on 22nd June 2019.

The 2019 competition was sponsored by the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, Safaricom, Tuko.co.ke, CDI Gadgets, and Konza City.

The BAKE Awards, since its inception in 2012, has recognised and awarded the best in Kenyan blogging every year. It is organised by the Bloggers Association of Kenya (BAKE), an organisation that promotes online content creation and free expression in Kenya.
