I’m really honoured to be nominated for the International Media Award 2013 in the New Media category by the Next Century Foundation. This is the same entity that honoured Al-Wasat’s Editor in Chief Dr Mansoor Al-Jamri last year.
The foundation will also run a conference on Bahrain at the same time where representatives from all sides have been invited.
MAHMOOD AL-YOUSIF is known to many as the ‘Blogfather’ and is considered to be the “father of Bahraini bloggers”. He specialises in new media and is known for his liberal and non-sectarian approach. His blog is dedicated to critiquing the Bahrain government, discussing local and world politics, religion , society as well as his day-to-day life. (http://mahmood.tv/)
