This new award is for community superstars

For over ten years, Abu Dhabi World has been dedicated to being the capital’s favourite weekly magazine.

But now it’s our turn to give back – and that’s why we’re hosting our first awards.

Kicking off on 20th September when registration opens for nominees, the awards will consist of 15 categories in three segments: Gold, Emerald and Diamond.

Just as we consider ourselves an ambassador to this great city, we want you to be an ambassador for our awards, helping us spread the word and ensuring the right people are recognised for their achievements.

“We’re so excited to launch the Pride of Abu Dhabi Awards 2018 so that we can give back to the community. I encourage all of our readers to visit our website and social media platforms to stay up to date and of course, don’t forget to vote!”

Voting will be open to the public on 18th November. To find out more, see the full list of categories and register nominees, visit: or search for @padawards on Instagram and Facebook.
