The Abu Dhabi Awards Organising Committee officially announced the start of the nomination period for Abu Dhabi Awards 2013.

This includes Abu Dhabi citizens, residents and non-residents whose good deeds have benefited the Emirate, as well as Abu Dhabi citizens performing good deeds internationally. There are no specific categories from which recipients are chosen, anyone whose good deeds have made outstanding contributions to the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and anyone who is doing a good deed for the benefit of the Emirate can be nominated and honoured.

Nominations have opened on April 21 and will run to May 31 with all the latest information at where people can also submit a nomination online.

Previous recipients have spoken about the honour of winning the previous Abu Dhabi Awards as the nomination period for 2013 opens and encourage everyone to participate during the nomination period.

At the age of just ten, Abdul Muqeet Abdul Mannan became the youngest ever recipient in 2011 following his environmental work in reducing plastic bag usage by creating bags from old newspapers.

"It is fantastic that the Abu Dhabi Awards are starting again and I will be nominating along with all my family and friends," said the schoolboy, who is from India.

"It is a huge honour and I cannot wait to see who receives an award this year." Dr. Taisser Atrak was also a 2011 recipient for his work in paediatrics in Abu Dhabi and for raising an awareness campaign for the wellbeing of children and those who care for them.

"It was a very proud occasion when I received an Abu Dhabi Award and this year I urge as many people as possible to get involved - it is a truly magnificent project for the whole of Abu Dhabi," he said.

Since being launched in 2005, there have been 56 Abu Dhabi Award recipients. Previous recipients made outstanding contributions in areas such as environmental conservation, caring for the sick and elderly, promoting arts and culture, supporting charitable causes and philanthropy.
