Tribute Awards-South Africa

I have decided to host the Tribute Awards-South Africa, for Muslim women bloggers that are making a difference with their words.

For those of you who are familiar with this blog, you’ll know that we had two previous Tribute Awards, but this time it will be slightly different, and here’s why.

This time the Tribute Award nominees will be restricted to South African blogs only. I apologise to all my international blogging sisters who are doing good things and spreading positivity, but this time I decided that it would be nice to motivate South African bloggers. Please do join in the voting though as this will be open to anyone.

So here’s how the awards will work:

Nominees can be sent in by anyone, but they have to meet the following criteria:
      Nominated blogs should be by a South African Muslim woman (because as you can see my blog is a tribute to Muslim women). Exceptions may be made if a blog is regarded as making a positive difference to all people with its general messages.

-          The blog has to be aiming to make a positive difference- that means we have to be able to learn and reflect on the writing. It should be discussing or illustrating important messages for example.

-          It should be uplifting- we have to be able to learn something that will help us improve our lives.

-          The genre doesn’t matter- it can be a fictional story, a motivational blog, real life story, even a photo blog, as long as it’s aiming to convey some sort of positive message and making people think about things differently.

The Process:

Nominations should be e-mailed to by the 4th of January 2014.

Please note that a short motivation for your nomination has to be provided and I have the final say in deciding whether a nominated blog fits the criteria above. Please also add a link to your nominated blog.

Inshaa-Allah on Sunday 5th January 2014 the final list of nominees will be put up and public voting will take place for one week, i.e. until 12 January 2014.

Winners will be announced on my blog on Monday 13th January 2014, Inshaa-Allah.

The first place winner will be gifted with a copy of my book, “Butterfly Wings”.

There will be two runner-up’s who will be mentioned as well.
