Brand Dubai launches photo contest

Brand Dubai, the creative arm of the Dubai Government’s media office, has announced the launch of a competition for the most beautiful photograph and video of the Emirate of Hatta, in association with the Hamdan International Photography Awards (HIPA).

The competition comes as part of the Hatta Winter Festival, which was launched to highlight the mountainous region’s importance as a centre for cultural, sports and family tourism.

Contestants were encouraged to capture “happy moments” with their families, “unique” natural places, entertainment and tourist attractions in the Hatta region, which is one of the most visited destinations in the world.

Three winners will be selected at the end of the competition. The prize for first place will be Dh10,000, Dh7,000 for second place and Dh3,000 for third place. Applications for the contest will be accepted until 31 December, and prizes will be awarded in the categories “Best Photo” and “Best Video”.

Contestants must upload photos and videos to their Instagram pages, having previously subscribed to @HIPAAE and @BrandDubai pages, and tag #Hattafestival_HIPA and @BrandDubai in the post.

Contestants can upload any number of photos. The length of the video should be between 30 to 60 seconds. Hatta Festival takes place daily, from 3pm to 9pm on weekdays and 10am to 10pm on weekends (Saturday and Sunday).

Visitors can enjoy traditional performances, light shows and sample Emirati cuisine in the mountains, among historical and archaeological sites, as well as attend dozens of cultural, sporting and entertainment events.
