Marvellous Mums – Mother’s Day competition

They said it with love, and we can now reveal the winners of our Mother’s Day card competition

We all know that they are extra special, but sometimes we don’t always let our mums know just how much they mean to us.

Given the chance to do just that with our Mother’s Day competition with Puck, the children of Oman responded in style. We were inundated with messages expressing love and appreciation for mums written on our printed cards.

We’ve heard how much your mum means to you, what wonderful things she does for you and your family and how, in your eyes, she’s the best mum ever.

“Congratulations to the winners of our Mother’s Day competition. We received hundreds of wonderful entries, all of them a touching dedication to many mums in Oman,” says Y’s managing editor, Felicity Glover.

“While Mother’s Day is a very special time of the year to celebrate and thank our mums for everything they do for us, I believe that we should celebrate our mums – and dads – every day of the year.”

With the help of our sponsor, Puck, we had some great prizes on offer with cash and goodie bags for the top three cards, including RO200 cash for the main winner.

The winning entries were also framed and given back to the participants to present to their mums as a keepsake at a special ceremony to honour them at Markaz Bahja Mall yesterday.

Thank you to everyone who entered. Here are our three winners:

1st Prize: Amita Sen, age 9


Congratulations, Amita! We loved your heartfelt words to your mum that describe how she prepares you nice food, helps with your homework and always cheers you up. You win RO200 cash and a goodie bag from Puck.

First Runner-up: Sara al Shamsi, age 8½


Well done, Sara! Your picture and simple message captured our attention. Treat your mum with your RO100 winnings.

Second Runner-up: Fionulla Precious G. Payuyo, age 14

Mother's Day Second Runner-up: Fionulla Precious G. Payuyo, age 14

Great effort, Fionulla! We liked your use of hashtags. Your Super Mum sounds amazing! Have a mum and daughter day out with your RO50 cash prize.

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