Dubai Residents: Join ‘Scavenger Hunt’ and win

By Angel Chan

DUBAI 9 January 2018: Dubai Culture and Dubai Cares have announced the launch of an new initiative entitled ‘Dubai Cares Scavenger Hunt’.

Held under the patronage of Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors Office at Dubai Culture and Arts Authority, the event will run from 8th to 29th January across the Emirate of Dubai, said Wam.

The “hunt” was specifically designed with residents in mind, offering them an exciting opportunity to explore their city and rediscover values close to the heart of every person who calls Dubai home.

Leading up to the launch of the initiative, Dubai Cares and Dubai Culture reached out to talented artists and designers from the UAE to design art pieces that are inspired by 15 common values.

The designs were then produced and placed in a structure shaped like a light bulb, which captures the idea ‘Knowledge is a Light that Never Fades’. Each art piece is inspired by the values instilled by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan in the UAE’s citizens and residents.

The team then selected 15 key locations in the city that cover both old and new Dubai. The structures, which have been generously sponsored by individuals and organisations in the UAE, were then placed in these locations.

The location of the 15 hidden light bulbs must be identified to complete the hunt. To locate the structures, participants should download the Dubai Cares app, where they will be able to access 15 different challenges and attempt to solve each with the help of three unique hints. Once the location is identified, participants should scan a QR code through the application, which has been placed on the structure itself. Upon scanning the QR Code, the challenge will be unlocked and the participant will be rewarded with one point before moving on to the next challenge.

The first participant to solve all the 15 challenges and complete the “hunt” will have the chance to win an opportunity to volunteer abroad with Dubai Cares, an annual day pass for Dubai Parks and Resorts, and a two-night stay for two at the Versace Hotel.

The second runner up will have the chance to win an opportunity for five volunteers to participate in an edition of Volunteer Emirates 2018, an annual day pass for Dubai Parks and Resorts, and a Dubai Mall voucher worth AED3,000.

The third place winner will also receive an opportunity for five volunteers to participate in an edition of Volunteer Emirates 2018, an annual day pass for Dubai Parks and Resorts, and a Dubai Mall voucher worth AED2,000. The top three winners will also be awarded a SensAsia Spa voucher.
