Founder Online Jury 2022 Online Jury 2023
Babak was working in ICT4D before it had a name (2001), never really left it, and knows how to throw together a pretty mean combination of a wide array of programming languages, both frontend and backend. He brought photomarathons to Africa (2007) and won the Highway Africa new media award (2007) with Ismail Farouk. Work of his was selected to represent Uganda at the UN World Summit Award, twice (2011, 2012), winning the global competition in 2012 with Eduardo Cachucho. In 2016, together with Agência Pública, he won, and was a runner up for, the Prêmio Jornalístico Vladimir Herzog de Anistia e Direitos Humanos. In 2017, work of his was again selected, now to represent Brazil, for the UN World Summit Award, going on to become a winner. In the same year, other works were nominated for the Gabriel García Márquez award and the Prêmio Petrobras de Jornalismo.

Babak maintains several mobile apps that help users to get lost.
