Launched in 2012 by the Bloggers Association of Kenya (BAKE), the Kenyan Blog Awards, also known as BAKE Awards, recognises and awards exceptional Kenyan bloggers. The competition, according to the organisers, is open to all Kenyans and brands that operate in Kenya.

The competition began with a submission phase for 19 categories from January 8 to February 10, 2016. Then the judges chose the best five blogs for each category, before online voting was open to the public on March 3, 2016.
