  2. 2. With the UAE’s big 40th anniversary looming the Tempo staff brainstormed ideas to make it a special community celebration. There weremany ideas bandied about, including exhibitions, parade etc, but the one idea that seemed to rise above the rest, and stick through all thediscussions, was a short video competition with the simple theme: “I LOVE UAE.”The New York Film Academy quickly embraced the idea to support Tempo, recognising the timeliness of the initiative and its value innurturing creative and artistic expression. Tempo sees it as a great platform that would provide the community with an opportunity to showtheir love. The “I LOVE UAE” competition met all our criteria: grassroots - tick, community - tick, innovative - tick, and relevant - big tick.With this, Tempo rolls out the “I LOVE UAE” video competition and calls for all to participate. The video doesn’t have to be super polished,but it needs to come from the heart. It can be a short song, a jig, a poem, a skit, a collage of images, a short “promo” or ad. It can be in anylanguage, but it should be authentic and heartfelt. So join us, and make your voice heard to celebrate this gracious nation that stands as abeacon of hope, peace and harmony.Be creative. Be genuine. Be kind.Sana BagershManaging Editorbagersh@abudhabitempo.com letters to the editor 04 19 experience zone MANAGING EDITOR uspace 05 20 social meets Sana Bagersh what’s hot 06 21 doc in the house | live well FEATURES EDITOR Alma Kadragic tempo top 10 songs 07 22 my abu dhabi 08 24 EDITORIAL COORDINATOR tech talk | game hedz yank in sandland | just a thought Ellaine Fatimacity bites | dishes for dummies 11 25 articulate MAGAZINE DESIGN my style blueprint 12 26 tamakkan Mark De Castro, BrandMoxie phototripping 13 27 unleash innovation WEB DESIGN 14 28 Rizwan Pervaiz featured story horoscope | funpage people calendar 16 29 value coupons MARKETING COORDINATOR Manjul Abhishek Laskar Laipubam DISTRIBUTION COORDINATOR Melaku MulunehADDRESS DISCLAIMERTo reach editorial at Abu Dhabi Tempo email: editorial@abudhabitempo.
