POSTED BY Y Magazine

The Holy Month is about sharing the spirit of Ramadan, and Y has some special treats lined up for the final week of our month-long competition.




Grand Prize: A Sony PlayStation Pro


We’ve got a supercharged PS4 Pro 1TB to give away as our final grand prize this week! Offering spectacular graphics and enhanced gameplay, the PS4 Pro is one of the coolest gaming consoles on the market today. With up to 4K streaming, the faster frame delivers sharp action and it’s also compatible with every PS4 game, while you can also test your skills with other players on PlayStation Plus. To enter, all you have to do is create a “10 Seconds of Summer” video of you or your family and friends at your favourite hangout in Oman. But remember, the video can only be 10 seconds long and you will need to be as creative as you can!

Email your video, including your name and phone number, to editor@y-oman.com no later than Monday, July 3. Good luck!


Mountain Getaway


There’s no better time than now to escape the heat of the city and head up to Jebel Akhdar, where the temperatures are at least 15 degrees Celsius cooler. Perched 2,000 metres above sea level in the Hajar Mountains, Alila Jabal Akhdar is the perfect escape for adventure travellers, nature lovers and those seeking a retreat from the desert heat. Best of all, Alila Jabal Akhdar is giving away one night’s stay for two people, inclusive of breakfast and dinner.     

To enter, all you have to do is post a picture on either Facebook, Instagram or Twitter (or all three!) of yourself or your surroundings showing us the temperature. The post with the most likes, comments and shares will be declared the winner. And don’t forget to include all of the following hashtags in your post:
