The winners of Deutsche Welle's The Bobs 2015 awards have been announced [1]. Online projects from Bangladesh [2], Mexico [3] and Syria [4] were selected as winners by an international jury.

Projects in 14 languages competedĀ in the categories of Social Change, Privacy and Security and Arts and Media, in addition to People's Choice [5].
