Celebrating the best

The winning work is announced and the Lynx trophies are proudly collected at the Dubai Lynx Awards Show. It's a glamorous event celebrating the region's best creativity. It now takes place in September 2020 following the close of the festival, at the Jumeirah Madinat Arena.

Make your mark 

Some of the world's most curious, keen-to-learn students and young talent call MENA home and the competitions help them show the region what they're made of.

Whether it's the Young Lynx Competitions at Dubai Lynx itself, or one of the Student Competitions and MDC Group Student Initiatives prior to the event, these competitions are an amazing opportunity to get noticed and supercharge your career.

Unleash your creative spirit 

Fancy yourself a future communications superstar? Show the region what you're made of by competing at Dubai Lynx. You and a partner will have just 24 hours at the festival to tackle a live brief set by a leading charity or NGO competing against teams from across MENA. You'll then be judged by some of the world's most respected creative names.

The reward for victory? A moment on stage at the Lynx Awards Show and all the creative exposure and validation that goes with it.

Dive into the creative world with a Dubai Lynx student initiative

Studying advertising or something similar in the region? Try an exciting communications challenge for students to craft a print or integrated campaign in response to a live brief set by a leading charity or NGO. It's a great way to take your first step into the industry and experience Dubai Lynx yourself.

In addition, this year, MBC Group has partnered with Dubai Lynx to offer students two more exciting opportunities to kickstart their careers with a one-month internship at MENA’s leading media company.
