All the African Blogger Awards winners

The 2014 African Blogger Awards, described as the first true, impartial measure of the reach, resonance and relevance of an influencer channel, has announced this year's winners. Big congrats to all of you!
The first annual African Blogger Awards saw over 520 entries from 27 African countries from all corners of the continent including Nigeria, Kenya, Benin, Mali, Morocco, Togo, Cameroon, Malawi and Eritrea, to name a few, with the diversity of nationalities being a clear indication that social media influencers across Africa have welcomed the opportunity to be measured quantitatively against their peers.

The awards also mark the first time that winners have been announced based on scientific metrics, rather than through peer nominations.

Marketers can now get in touch with all entrants to share branded advertorial content with these African audiences by using the competition partner, Webfluential.

The next African Blogger Awards will be held in February 2015.
