Nominations for the Fourth Annual Brass Crescent Awards are now up (now that the good folk at the Awards have finished wading through 300 nominations). Voting closes on the 14th December.
It’s the strongest ever British performance this year, although far be for me to suggest that patriotism is the only valid voting criterion! The Brits include Spirit21 for “Best Blog” and “Best Female Blog”, The Cutting Edge, Rolled-Up Trousers and The Islamicist all make it into “Most Deserving of Wider Recognition”, Deenport for “Best Design”, A Muslim Think Tank for “Best Post or Series” on Muslims in the EU, Riazat Butt’s Islamophonic for “Best Multimedia Blog” and The Cutting Edge crops up again for “Best Ijtihad”. Oh, and some bloke managed to sneak in as well and is completely failing to show the requisite faux sangfroid at the moment!
