Our friends at Reporters Sans Frontieres are running a contest to honor blogs defending freedom of expression. Contest finalists were posted yesterday, and the Global Voices community is well represented.
Jeff Ooi's Screenshots, and Rebecca Mackinnon's NKZone are both nominated in the “Asia” category. Hoder's Editor:Myself is one of the nominees in the (huge, rich) Iranian blogger category. Allies Dan Gillmor and Jay Rosen are two-thirds of the “Americas” category, and yours truly was nominated in the International category, alongside our friends at the Committee to Protect Bloggers.
While we at Global Voices encourage you to vote for your favorite bloggers, we encourage you even more strongly to explore all the fantastic blogs featured by RSF. We'll be profiling many of these excellent blogs between now and the close of voting on June 1st. Many thanks to RSF and Julien Pain for administering this contest and featuring so many amazing blogs.
