Asia Blog Awards 2004: Full Results

The official results are in. Please click on the links below to see the results in each category.

Thank you to everyone who participated. While the awards themselves are competitive, the main point is to create greater exposure for blogs right across Asia. A total of 27,200 votes were cast and there has been interest from mainstream media as well as around the world. The diversity and quality of Asian blogs is astounding and something that will only grow in the future.

In each category I have listed the three top vote-winners and then the other finalists. For many of the country categories I have added links to blog directories covering that country. I have left space for other blogs that also fit each category to be added in time. Alternatively you can look at the Best Blogs in Asia directory.

Thanks again and enjoy the many Asian blogs on display.

Update: Thanks to IZ, new special logos are available at the bottom of this post.

Update 2: I am gathering expressions of interest in an Asian Blogging Convention in 2005.

It was always a bit of a stretch to put Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in the same category, but it's a bit odd not to Sri Lanka in the group title now that the results are in.

Thanks for your efforts,
