Mabrook to all of the winners, honorable mentions, and nominees for the Brass Crescent Awards. I would like to congratulate Suhaib Webb for Best Blog, Muslimah Media Watch for best female blog, and Marc Manley for honorable mention for Best Design and the many others . This year has been promising due to the high quality of articles produced by group blogs such as MuslimMatters, Muslimah Media Watch, and Suhaib Webb. A number of individual writers have contributed thoughtful pieces throughout this year. Many of them escaped notice during the Brass Crescent Awards. My hope is that this year we encourage a new crop of young writers with an eye for journalism, fresh perspectives, and sharp analytical lenses.
