His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, will select five individuals to be recognised as "Expo Ambassadors" as part of a national campaign, entitled "Be part of it", to officially support the UAE's bid to host the 2020 World Expo in Dubai.

Admissions to the competition start today until September 30, 2012, and can be submitted on the UAE Expo 2020 website or at the special "Be part of it" kiosks in leading malls across the different emirates. Participants can enter by answering the question: Why should the UAE host the 2020 World Expo? The five individuals will be selected by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum based on the quality of their submission and the expression of pride in the UAE, and its achievements, that highlight why it is an ideal place to host the World Expo 2020.

The "Expo Ambassadors" will have the opportunity to represent the UAE at a special reception in Paris, France, in November 2012, as guests of the Expo 2020 bid team.

Beginning soon, shortlisted entries will be uploaded to the UAE Expo 2020 website and open for public voting on an ongoing basis. Following the conclusion of the initial shortlisting process, members of the public will again have the opportunity to cast a vote for their preferred submission prior to the final selection.

To ensure the full participation of the local and international community across all age groups a special category has been created that is open exclusively to children under the age of 13. Winners in this category will receive similar recognition and an Expo-themed prize.

Further details about the "Be part of it" competition, including all relevant terms and conditions, are available at www.expo2020dubai.aeand on the Facebook page (www.facebook.com/DubaiExpo2020). – Emirates News Agency, WAM
