How to win Dhs600,000 in Abu Dhabi creative competition

Celebrate the capital through art, photography and the written word

Creative talents can make massive capital gains – by capturing the brilliance of Abu Dhabi for a major competition.

Abu Dhabi Through Your Eyes will celebrate the awe-inspiring sights, incredible nature, striking landmarks and superb culture of the UAE capital through the stroke of a brush or a pen or the flash of a camera.

Photographers, videographers and artists are being urged to show off their unique vision of the emirate – and get in line for a share of a prize haul of more than Dhs600,000.

Entrants can submit short films, photographs focusing on themes such as landscapes, nature and wildlife and architecture, with special awards for the best Al Ain and Al Dhafrah, while writers and artists can also display their pride in their city through picture perfect images or vibrant words.

Entries close at 6pm on March 13, so it’s time to draw (or write or photograph) inspiration from one of the best cities on the planet.
