Men's Custom Adhesive nature Short Sleeve Tops TeesSince the rebirth of this blog as Quoran of the Week in May 2015, we have featured 28 outstanding writers, allowing us to shine a spotlight on some of the hidden gems of Quora.

This has truly been a community effort, with anyone allowed to nominate good but largely undiscovered writers they had come across, and our team of judges picking a winner every Sunday.

With the last of our 2015 winners named a week ago, we are turning it over to you to decide: Which of our Quorans of the Week deserves the honour of being named Quoran of the Year?

THE PRIZES:

This is a title that comes with some wonderful prizes as well, thanks to Quora and a couple of the blog biggest supporters. Here what we have lined up:

Quoran of the Year.
Our first Quoran of the Year will receive this collector item: The first Best of Quora book (2010-2012), signed by company CEO Adam D’Angelo and a number of key employees. We are grateful to Jonathan Brill for making this prize possible, and to everyone at Quora HQ for their support of this blog. It is sincerely appreciated.

The Quoran of the Year will also receive two other valuable prizes: an autographed copy of Scott Danzig’s cute cat book, Luna, the Little Chomper, and a beautiful Chengeta Wildlife messenger bag.

The messenger bag is courtesy of Chengeta Wildlife president Lisa Groeneweg, whose work along with that of Rory Young in battling poachers in Africa deserves a huge amount of praise and support. Chengeta Wildlife is a nonprofit organization that depends on donations and contributions to sustain its ongoing battle against poaching, please consider adding this worthy cause to your Christmas gift list.

And of course most Quorans are (or should be) familiar with Scott’s popular blogs, Luna’s Scrapbook and The Quora Users’ Blog. Sadly, Luna will not be adding her pawtograph to the book being sent to the winner. As an aside, this book would make a wonderful Christmas gift for any cat-lovers in your life, look for it on Amazon.

Runner-up.
We also have a couple of nice prizes for the person who finishes second in the voting. Our runner-up will receive a Chengeta Wildlife 2016 calendar and a PDF copy of Luna, the Little Chomper. Thanks again, Lisa and Scott!
