Thank you to our wonderful contributors, staff, and most of all readers. OUPblog is one of nine 2013 Webby honorees in the ‘Blog – Cultural’ category. I can’t tell you how thrilled we are to be alongside the New Yorker‘s Page-Turner and Perez Hamilton. And further congratulations to the Oxford Islamic Studies Online team or their Religion & Spirituality Websites nomination and the Oxford Music Online team for their Best Writing (Editorial) honor. The International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences acknowledges outstanding Webby Awards entries as Official Honorees, alongside their Nominees. With 11,000 entries received from all 50 US states and over 60 countries, the Official Honoree distinction is awarded to the top 15% of all work entered. Honorees are selected for recognition based on excellence in content, structure and navigation, visual design, functionality, interactivity, and overall experience. Now please get out and vote for Oxford Islamic Studies Online!
