 MAD intro

Friday has celebrated hundreds of people, groups and organisations who have built schools, saved lives and raised funds for charity to make a difference to the lives of millions.

Now the UAE’s most widely read magazine is giving you the opportunity to nominate the person, group, organisation and school, among others, that you feel deserves to be recognised for their selfless and inspiring work.

You can nominate in seven categories and the only rule is that they should be living in or helping someone from the UAE except for our International Award, which is open to anyone no matter where they live.

Nominations are open until midnight September 19, 2015. Once closed, we will shortlist the entries for each category for you to vote for online.

The person, group or organisation who gets the most votes in each category will be the winner.

There is also a special category for the person, business, charity, group or school who has impressed the Friday editor in the Editor’s Choice award.

A panel of eminent judges, including the editor, will pick one of the category winners to be named the overall winner of Friday’s Making A Difference Awards 2015.
