UAE National Day @ Global Village

The UAE’s Golden Jubilee calls for an equally grand celebration.


Throughout this month starting on Flag Day 3rd November, Global Village will be hosting special events to celebrate “50 Years of Togetherness”. From fun to fireworks, and from culture to contests, there's something for everyone during the Global Village National Month celebrations.

Together - capture 50 years of togetherness

Starting on 3rd November we are inviting photographers of all ages to capture the spirit of the nation. Over 18s can get up to AED 102,000 cash prizes and the prestige of winning a HIPA photography contest. Our Junior social media contest for under 18s has a cash prize of AED 5,000. So get out your cameras and join us to celebrate the multiculturalism of the UAE.

UAE Kids Quizz
