About the award
Founded in 2017, Haitians Who Blog was established to provide a network for emerging creatives, bloggers, and influencers on social media. We established a recognition initiative that started as love and then became the Haitian Creative Digital Awards.
In 2020, after success with additional categories, the Haitian Creative Digital Awards expanded to also include fashion, dance, food, fitness, parenting, and lifestyle categories, furthering the mission of Haitians Who Blog. Nominees are selected through a public nomination. The voting process is reviewed by a team of esteemed judges. We leave it to the voters to select their finalists. We are proud to celebrate the inclusive and diverse talent represented through our nominees, winners, judges, and the overall Haitian creative community. Visit our past years’ awards, winners.
