Deutsche Welle’s The BOBs is over, and according to them, the best weblog is Generación Y, a Cuban blog in Spanish authored by Yoani Sanchez. Russian Radio Grinch received the price for best podcast, and 4equality (in Persian) got the Reporters Without Borders price.

Placed under house arrest, Zeng Jinyan describes her life under constant surveillance by the Chinese authorities. The Persian Weblog 4equality is working to gather 1 million signatures on a petition for women’s rights in Iran. The Sunlight Foundation’s Party Blog, which exposes what groups and companies sponsor fundraising events for US politicians, won the Best Weblog English award.
