The Sharjah Events Agenda 2021 showcases all events, activities, conferences, festivals and exhibitions that have been lined up throughout 2021. In line with the #SeeSharjah campaign, the emirate has introduced an exciting contest, which aims to encourage everyone to explore Sharjah and to capture pictures of it and to share online with the campaign hashtag.

The contest is conducted in different categories such as the landscape, culture, urban and historical attractions and there will be a winner in each category. After the competition, the winning images or videos will be collected in each category and the audience’s vote will determine the best video or image to win the #SeeSharjah competition title.

Other activities of the campaign include the distribution of attractive frames in various locations in Sharjah city and Khorfakkan to promote the #SeeSharjah and encourage people to photograph themselves with these frames and share them through their social media accounts with the campaign hashtag.

#SeeSharjah campaign is also planning to shoot short films of influential figures from various walks of life following their work and activities on a given day and it will help the audiences learn about the new developments, attractions and all that is going on in the emirate.
