Al Ameen x HIPA Contest


Al Ameen Service, in collaboration with the Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum International Photography Award, invite all professional, amateur and photography enthusiasts to take part in an Instagram competition dedicated to visually showcasing their main vision of ‘Community Solidarity and Sustainable Security in Dubai’.

With the community’s cooperation, Al Ameen Service works to sustain the security within Dubai, allowing the residents, expats and tourists to go about their daily lives. Public welfare, and the initiative to protect against elements detrimental to society, are all a part of Al Ameen Service’s mission to maintain kindness, tolerance, solidarity, cooperation and love.

And the best way to showcase this is by capturing the everyday life of… ‘Where You Feel Safe’.

** Important note: all photographs must be taken in Dubai only

Deadline for participation is Friday, 29th April 2022
