Great news that Yahoo! Maktoob (the Middle East and North Africa region of Yahoo!) have agreed to host the viewing and voting for the People’s Choice award at the 2011 AIBs (international media excellence awards run by the Association for International Broadcasting).
The People’s Choice award this year is for “Best TV coverage of democracy uprisings” and will be awarded to the entry which receives the most votes from viewers on the Yahoo! site. Given that the democracy uprisings have been focused on North Africa and the Middle East this year, Yahoo! Maktoob with its 55 million viewers in the region as well as easy accessibility around the whole world is the ideal site for this online voting.
