They are the superheroes of our lives – our mothers, that is. And to celebrate all that they do for us, Y Magazine has teamed up with Puck for a great competition.



It’s high time that mothers get the credit they deserve. And that is why Y Magazine has teamed up with Puck to show the mums of Oman just how much they are loved by their children, in a special competition to coincide with Mother’s Day in the GCC, which is celebrated on March 21.

This is the third edition of the competition and last year saw our boxes inundated with hundreds of entries as children across the capital put their feelings down on paper, proving why, in their opinion, their mum was the best in the world.

It’s not just the title of Oman’s Best Mum that is on the line. Thanks to Puck, there will be goodie bags and cash prizes for the top three entries, with RO200 going to first place, RO100 for second and RO50 for third. If this isn’t motivation enough to show your love, then we don’t know what is – just think of all the treats you could buy your mum as a thank you to all that she does for you.

“As a mum, I know just how important mothers are in our fast-moving, 21st century lives. Y’s competition is a wonderful opportunity for children to thank their mums for all the wonderful things they do for them,” says Felicity Glover, the managing editor of Y Magazine.

To enter, you’ll need to be 16 or under. Just pick up a special card, available in next week’s issue of Y Magazine, and fill it with a heartfelt message of love for your mum.

Remember, our judges will be selecting the winners based on content and display so don’t be afraid to get creative. Last year, we received poems, drawings, touching words and simple displays of gratitude, so getting creative is a must.

Look out for the A5 card in next week’s issue of Y. Complete your entry and be as creative as you like with words and pictures – good luck and remember to say it with love!

And finally:

The top three entries will also be framed and given back to the participants for them to present to their mothers as a keepsake.

The competition closes on March 19 and our winners will be awarded their prizes with their mum at a special ceremony.
