blbc2012-logo Brave Little Blogger Contest 2012I heard today, via the wonderful Julie Fox (who always has an ear to the ground, it would appear!) that I’ve been awarded FIRST PRIZE in the Brave Little Blogger Contest 2012 with my entry CENSORSHIP – Muslims Caught In The Middle.

I’m thrilled, (not to mention gobsmacked) at both winning the competition, despite the high threshold set by the other contenders, and at having my message understood by the judges. I thank them for their encouragement and support in fighting censorship and supporting those who feel they don’t have a voice.
