Freelancers and professionals within Dubai Media City’s ecosystem are invited to leave an imprint on the Media City Amphitheatre.

Dubai Media City, a cornerstone of TECOM Group and the centre of content creation in the UAE, has launched a competition to spotlight talented design champions within its community by taking over the Dubai institution as an exciting 2023/24 events season beckons.

The media hub is on the hunt for visuals that champion sustainability and the beauty of green spaces.

The winning artwork will be installed across Media City Amphitheatre – right at the heart of Dubai’s media community.

The winning entry will be selected by a jury panel comprising Thea Skelton, Director of Dubai Lynx Festival, Majed Al Suwaidi, Senior Vice President of Dubai Media City at TECOM Group, Jon Barber, Vice President of Marketing and Communications at TECOM Group, and Sahar Rafique, Managing Director of NordStella.

“Dubai Media City, home to the world’s most creative minds in the media and content sectors, is uniquely positioned to tell an engaging story of the need for environmental sustainability,” says Al Suwaidi.

“Our community is brimming with talented creatives, and we’re inviting them to join us in driving forward the global mission to make the world a greener place by creating engaging, memorable designs that strengthen Dubai’s efforts towards greater climate awareness and eco-consciousness.

“The winning design from this competition will be a visionary visual treat that transforms Media City Amphitheatre into a platform that highlights our planet’s environmental needs for now and the future,” he added.
