Calling all children across Oman! Show us just how much you love your Mummy this Mother’s Day and enter for a chance to crown her as ‘Oman’s Best Mum’, as we kick off our annual competition once again!
Mothers are the lifeline of the family – there’s no denying that, and it is high time we give our mums the credit they deserve. That is why Y Magazine has teamed up with PUCK to show the mums of Oman just how much they’re 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 fifth edition of the competition – and following trend, this year’s will even be bigger and better than ever!
In 2018, we 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’s on the line. Thanks to PUCK, there will be several valuable prizes up for grabs for the top three entries. And, 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 for all that she does for you.
The first real human interaction a child has once they’re born is with their mother. It’s a bond that’s strong and beyond what words can convey. But, every now and then, we must try and express our love for our beloved mothers. And Team Y is thrilled to bring our loyal readers a competition that will do just that!
To enter, you’ll need to be age 16 or under. Just pick up a special card, which will be slotted into 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 creativity so don’t be afraid to get artistic 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 the next 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!
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 30 and our winners will be awarded their prizes with their mum at a special ceremony.
