WHY WEST AFRICA BLOGGERS AWARD
Most bloggers awards have failed to get the required hypeand support because they ignore some key and important aspects.I and my team have made our research and some outlines are;
Plaques: This is the aspect where most bloggers awards has ignored; they depend mostly on online badges which gives little or no prestige to the award.
Glamour: This is the most important aspect if bloggers are meant to be celebrated, most bloggers awards have failed to host any form of award ceremony to celebrate winners of and so have lack the prestige. glamorous ceremony are needed to give any award needed prestige.
Publicity: Most bloggers awards have made their criteria for selection of winners hidden and have had questionable credibility because of these reasons.
Public Engagement: A major reason why bloggers awards should be organized aside from celebrating and acknowledging bloggers, it is to enlighten the public the right place(blogs) to get information and not to be misled by desperate bloggers, west africa bloggers award is making sure the public has a bigger involvement in its award proceedures.
Workshop: Bloggers need to be professionals, and so west africa bloggers award is dedicated to give all its nominees trainings and lectures to live up to the required standard set by the west africa bloggers award.
