Religion and Theology Blog Awards 2014 7 May 2014

laptop with digital tabletHere at On Religion, we’ve been trying to think of a way to celebrate and recognise high quality writing on religion, theology and faith. We want to raise the profile of those writing about religion from an in-depth and informed position that contributes towards raising society’s religious literacy.

After some brainstorming, we felt that one of the best ways to do that is by running the very first (drumroll please…) Religion and Theology Blog Awards!

We’re not afraid to admit this is an experiment, but we’re keen to see where it goes.

We have two stage process in mind. In the first stage, we will take all nominations for a blog in three categories. These nominations will then be reduced to a shortlist by the On Religion Team. The second stage will consist of the final shortlist being posted online and the winner will be decided through public voting.

Our three categories are: –

1. Best Religion and Current Affairs Blog
Awarded to a blog that shows in-depth analysis of religion in the public sphere, particularly on issues of politics and contemporary debates.

2. Best Religious Education Blog
Awarded to the blog or website that provides outstanding  resources and information for those seeking to understand and learn about world religions.

3. Best Open Theology Blog
Awarded to a blog which is confessional and reverential in tone, but is accessible to those of many religious and theological backgrounds.

Nominations are open until July 31st 2014.

To nominate a blog, email with the following information:-
1) The name and URL of the blog you are nominating
2) For which category the blog is being nominated
3) Why it should be chosen for the shortlist

NB: We are looking for sponsors to support the blog awards with prizes for the winners and finalists. Any businesses out there interested in supporting the awards, please do drop us an email!
