The Abu Dhabi Awards Organising Committee has confirmed today that the 2011 Abu Dhabi Awards Ceremony will be broadcast on Wednesday, 25th January 2012 at 09:00 pm on Abu Dhabi Al Oula.
Held under the patronage of His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, the ceremony will recognise the 2011 Abu Dhabi Awards recipients.
Recipients, together with their families, will be joined at the ceremony by senior representatives from Government and the community from across the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. The ceremony celebrates the spirit within which the Awards are held; the spirit of generosity and kindness of the people who have selflessly given their time to build and support the community of Abu Dhabi.
A spokesperson for the Abu Dhabi Awards Organising Committee, said: “During the Abu Dhabi Awards 2011 campaign, many citizens and residents of the Emirate have participated in nominating people whose good deeds have benefited the Emirate, and now is the time to showcase the 2011 recipients. The ceremony aims to inspire the people of Abu Dhabi to follow the recipients’ footsteps and have the opportunity to share in the celebration of goodness.”
In 2011, 21,000 individuals were nominated - the highest number of any Abu Dhabi Awards campaign to date. As in every year, nominations are open to any age or nationality, and can be drawn from across the community and internationally, so long as their good deeds have been of benefit to the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. The 2011 recipients will join the select group of 46 past recipients who have been honoured during the previous five Awards Ceremonies.
