Brass Crescent Awards: Win tickets to see “Journey to Mecca” in London

Brass Crescent Awards: Win tickets to see “Journey to Mecca” in London November 16, 2009
Next best thing to being there

The Brass Crescent Awards, a coproduction of altmuslim and City of Brass, is an annual vote of the favourites of the Muslim blogosphere, with dozens of finalists and over 1,000 voting participants each year. Voting has begun this week and continues through November 27th.

To celebrate, we’re offering five pairs of tickets to see a special IMAX screening in London of “Journey to Mecca,” courtesy of Gazelle Media. The documentary, narrated by Ben Kingsley, tells the amazing story of Ibn Battuta, the greatest explorer of the Old World, following his first pilgrimage between 1325 and 1326 from Tangier to Mecca. The story is book-ended by a close-up look at the contemporary Hajj, a pilgrimage to Mecca that draws three million Muslims from around the world.

To win, answer this question: Who won the Brass Crescent Award for Best Blog in 2006?

To enter, send your response by e-mail to info[at]altmuslim.com after casting a vote for the Brass Crescent Awards. The first five correct answers received will each receive entry for a pair to see “Journey to Mecca” at the British Film Institute’s IMAX theatre, 1 Charlie Chaplin Walk, London. When the tickets are gone, I’ll announce it in this post.

The screening is at 9:00am on Sunday, November 29th, so please be sure you can attend before entering. Oh, and transport is not provided (unless you’re a modern day Ibn Battuta).
