Global Village

Global Village is UAE’s leading multicultural family destination

The UAE’s leading multicultural family destination Global Village begins its month long UAE National Day celebrations on the 50th Flag day of our nation.

Global Village launches the 50 Years of Togetherness photography contest. This is in partnership with Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum International Photography Award. The competition will create a collection of photographs exploring shared identities and values through the lens of individuals.

The contest welcomes submissions celebrating multiculturalism, diversity, and tolerance from amateur and professional photographers alike until the UAE National Day.

Participants must be over 18 years of age and those using professional cameras are required to apply for a permit on the Global Village website. All entries must be uploaded on HIPA’s website.

Beyond winning a HIPA photography contest the 1st Prize winner will receive a AED 50,000 cash prize and a gold trophy. The 2nd Prize winner will receive AED 26,000, a silver trophy and a Global Village goodie bag. The 3rd Prize winner will receive AED 26,000 and a glass trophy.

The Top 10 runner ups will receive Global Village Experience Packs, including Entry Tickets and Wonder Pass cards.

The contest will close on UAE National Day, 2nd December. The Winners will be announced on 4th January in an award ceremony at the Global Village Main Stage.

Global Village hasn’t forgotten the younger shutterbugs either. Photographers under the age of 18 will have their own social media contest with the same theme. To enter young photographers simply need to upload images illustrating “50 years of togetherness” on Instagram using hashtags #GVWOW and #Together between 3rd November and 30th November.

Winners for the children’s contest will be announced on 2nd December, the UAE’s National Day. A great public platform for the young and budding talent. Opportunity of a lifetime!!

Numerous other events and activations will be revealed throughout the month including the Dubai Cultural Authority UAE Quiz on weekends through every Thursday and Friday of the month and some very special guest performances from 1st – 4th December.

Another event to hone your knowledge and showcase your intellect.
