For the first time, Pakistan and Turkey can enter the awards.
The Dubai Lynx International Festival of Creativity 2015 will see the introduction of a dedicated stage for seven hours of presentations and panel discussions in Arabic, under the theme ‘Arabic Day’, alongside the main programme.
Emma Farmer, Festival director, Dubai Lynx, said, “Dubai Lynx serves as a reflection of the industry and so it’s important that each year we take the time to ensure that we are offering a Festival and awards that inspires creativity, facilitates unrivalled networking opportunities and offers exceptional learning opportunities. Feedback from last year’s delegates and the industry pointed at the need for more focused Arabic content, so we’re particularly delighted that we are able to introduce this carefully curated day which will run alongside our main content programme.”
The Festival slated for 8 to 11 March will also play host to ‘Tech Talks’ (focused on technology).
