Voting open for the Brass Crescent Awards!

posted by Aziz Poonawalla

It’s time to once again cast your vote for the Islamsphere’s best and brightest – the polls are now open in the 6th Anual Brass Crescent Awards for the Islamic Blogsphere!

This year we were a little delayed with the voting phase, partly because I had an unexpected trip in October and then partly because of the tragedy at Fort Hood, which rightly dominated the attention of the blogsphere as a whole, but the Islamsphere in particular.

However, we are now ready to go, and you can vote until Nov. 27th at the official site, BrassCrescent.org, so what are you waiting for?

The categories this year include two new ones- BEST RETIRED BLOG and BEST TWEETER – and they have fantastic nominees. So check it out and vote!

For more details and updates on the Awards, follow the BCA on twitter (@brasscrescent) or join the FaceBook page!

Also – if you’re a UK resident, take note a this great promotion by altmuslim.com – an opportunity to score free tickets to the IMAX film “Journey to Mecca“. But please don’t forget to vote first!
