2012 Nominees

The nominees for the 2012 Nigerian Blog Awards are:

  1. Best Beauty Blog

    Blog that focuses on any aspect of business or career, or on finding jobs.

  4. Best Cause Blog
    Blog about raising awareness for a particular cause, such as a medical condition or a political movement.
    This category was removed because the nominated blogs were either too young a blog or did not even vaguely fit the description of the category. One blog partially worked because although it is not devoted to a cause, it raised awareness about someone’s illness. Most submitting nominations mistook a cause for a theme or subject.
