March 28, 2009 - PRLog -- The blog was supported by Ammar Bakkar a senior media figure in Abu Dhabi and recognised by the International Community in Iraq.
The winner Adel Hamed from Al Sader City in Baghdad is currently employed as a computer programmer, in his story “I vote for myself”, Adel promotes the conversion steps from a dictatorship to a democracy,  in an encouraging writing persuading voters to not be biased towards candidates with western financing for their campaigns, but rather to vote for a candidate they deem most deserving, in an effort to plow their way to change and a better tomorrow. Adel concluded his article stating voters needn’t forget that their vote, though for a representative, is in their best interest.

The Runner-up Fares Al Aajrash, is currently employed as a general manager. Fares discusses the history of ruling in Iraq, the rise and fall of empires, the evolution of electoral structure, and hence the importance of elections and voting.

Both Adel and Fares will be receiving support from the Crossfire Media Iraq project this year. This will lead to work experience with the project team in Erbil, northern Iraq in September 2009.
