Chilean Blog Contest: The Winners

While some bloggers in the world have legal problems because of posting their ideas on their blogs, it's ironic that in Chile were celebrating the first Latin America Blog contest.

More than 2000 bloggers from 12 countries inscribed in the Atina Blog Awards. The first jury was the bloggers themselves, who were able to vote for their favorite weblogs. Also specialists judges selected the best ones from every category.

“Dany Space” (ES), starts her blog declaring this was a second stage of her life, because she had a gastric bypass to take off the extra weight, so she regularly posts about her personal views and the medical controls with photos about her monthly results. She garnered the most votes.
“Afumhue” (ES), a Chilean teen that lived in Norway for seven years, was the winner of the design category. The Science and Technology category was for “Gamer Café” (ES).

Culture and Art went to “Ventanas de Colores” (ES). The best Personal Blog was for “Juanelo” (ES), who comes up with creative comics.

The political category, was for “Iván Seisdedos” (ES), from the first region.

Two firemen who post in “Bomberos del Mundo” (ES) took home the best Journalist blog award. Everything about international fires, events, and news can be found in this blog.

Viral Marketing and understanding costumer are the issues that can be found in “Muga” (ES), the blog that was given “Special Mention” in the contest.

The overall winner was “Plataforma Urbana” (ES), a group blog that covers urban design such as icon buildings, city planning, and urban projects in Chile and the world. “Plataforma Urbana” also won the group blog category.
