Sayidaty launches ‘Bahjetna Emaratya’ campaign for UAE National Day

DUBAI: Sayidaty magazine has launched a campaign and competition to celebrate the 49th UAE National Day, observed each year on Dec. 2.
The “Bahjetna Emaratya” campaign, launched by the Arab women’s magazine, a sister publication of Arab News, will follow the stories of Emirati and Saudi women, who are “united by close borders, and the common history in customs and traditions, including family meetings, social events such as weddings, and the celebration of holidays with all its rituals and customs, in addition to costumes and popular dishes.”
The campaign aims to start a conversation on both sides, spotlighting the origins of these mutual traditions and embracing their differences. It will also shed light on some of the popular folktales from the region.
Participants belong to various groups and communities from the UAE and abroad, and a number of artists, writers, public figures, and businessmen and women, will join the conversation.
Both male and female readers can enter the competition with any form of creative expression, such as photography, videography, poetry, painting, music, and so on. Participants can also write a story about a historic piece of art or an essay on the points of similarity between the two countries in terms of their customs and traditions.
Sayidaty will publish all entries on its website and social media, while the best contributions will receive certificates of appreciation. All contributions will be subject to evaluation by a judging panel, comprising experts from various creative fields.
Distinguished achievers will get an opportunity to join the “Friends of Sayidaty Magazine” team and publish their creations during 2021.
Individuals who wish to participate in the campaign should send their submissions to: [email protected]
