Nominations are now open for the Eighth Annual Brass Crescent Awards!

Every year these awards get the Islamosphere all a-buzz with excitement as readers nominate and then vote on their favourite (Muslim and non-Muslim expert) bloggers.

From the site:

What are the Brass Crescent Awards? They are named for the Story of the City of Brass in the Thousand and One Nights. Today, the Islamsphere is forging a new synthesis of Islam and modernity, and is the intellectual heir to the traditions of philosophy and learning that was once the hallmark of Islamic civilization – a heritage scarcely recognizable today in the Islamic world after a century’s ravages of colonialism, tyrants, and religious fundamentalism. We believe that Islam transcends history, and we are forging history anew for tomorrow’s Islam. These awards are a means to honor ourselves and celebrate our nascent community, and promote its growth.

There are many excellent writers deserving of a nomination! Take a moment to show them some love.
