You might remember that a month back there was a post here on our humble board about a British Muslim organization called Nour DV. This amazing organization is dedicated to engaging the public, and especially the minority Muslim communities, to become aware and take action against this silent yet prevalent social injustice – domestic violence. They recently held a competition called "Silence Hides Violence", where viewers, age 16 and older, could submit poetry, art, portraits, videos, or short stories about domestic violence. The competition really allowed viewers to do their part in spreading awareness while showcasing their individual passions and talents. The judging was tough for Nour representatives but they were able to whittle entries down to a Top 5 category, and then from there, runners up were chosen and then finally, a winner. Below, I have shared the Top 5 entries and winners. Please enjoy their poetry and writings respectfully and make sure to visit Nour Domestic Violence.
Winner of the competition!
