We asked you to tell us how much you loved your mum in our special competition and we were blown away by the response. Are you one of the winners?
It’s clear that the mothers of Oman are loved and greatly appreciated, if the reaction to our competition is anything to go by.
We have been spending the past week sorting through hundreds of personal Mother’s Day messages written on our special Y cards.
We’ve heard how your mum looks after you, why she is so important to you and what makes her so special in your eyes, with some of you really making an effort with pictures and heartfelt words.
“We were overwhelmed with loving messages for the mums of Oman. Choosing the winners has been very difficult as we waded through all the cards,” says Felicity Glover, Y’s managing editor.
“There were some lovely sentiments to mums all over the country and we were truly touched by many messages. As a mother myself, it was wonderful to read how everybody feels about their mums.”
With the help of our main sponsor Cake Gallery and associate sponsors, Nissan and Tips & Toes nail spas and beauty lounges, we had some great prizes on offer, including RO200 cash for the overall winner.
Thank you to everyone who entered. Here are our four winners:
FIRST PRIZE: Julia Klefasz
Congratulations, Julia! We loved your “mum recipe” and you win RO200 cash – enjoy spending it and treating your mum to something nice.
FIRST RUNNER-UP: Wafa al Jahwari
Well done, Wafa! The story about your mum was very touching. We hope she enjoys a night for two at The Chedi Muscat hotel.
SECOND RUNNER UP: Syeda Kabir Sara

Unfortunately, not everyone can be a winner, but here’s a gallery of the entries we felt deserved special mention
