Katara announces winners of Covid stay-at-home writing competitions

Katara announces winners of Covid stay-at-home writing competitions

DOHA : Katara Cultural Village has announced the results of the Covid stay-at-home writing competitions it organised recently. More than 1,800 entries were received in the competitions held in two categories - for adults and students - on the themes of ‘Working from Home’ and ‘Studying from Home’, respectively.

In the Working from Home category, Chad Martin, a Canadian citizen, won the first prize; Jan Xavier Pacle (Philippines), won the second prize and Matthias Krug (Germany), the third prize.

In the Studying from Home category, Shahd Ashawesh (British national, Doha College) won the first prize; Joshua Hackett (Italian national, Qatar Finland International School) won the second prize, and Kari Louise Sparrock (British national, American School of Doha) the third prize.

The first, second and third prizes in both categories carry cash awards of QR10,000, QR7,000 and QR5,000, respectively.

Katara is also giving seven consolation prizes in each category.

In the Working from Home category, the consolation prize winners are: Emma Rogers (New Zealand), Mohammad Azhar Abbas (Pakistan), Sandra Negreira (Britain), Megha Mariam George (India), Samantha Clare Elemento (Philippines), Peter Pearce (Britain) and Masaba Obaid Abdulla (Pakistan). 

In the Studying from Home category, the consolation prize winners are: Zuha Imran (Pakistan International School); Dena El Fahal (English Modern School); Mariam Erradi (Hayat School); Hassan Syed Mohd (DPS-MODERN India School); Shayan Raza Kashif Abbas (The Next Generation School); Sara Hamamieh (Blyth Academy Qatar) and Inas Binti Mohd Amin (Al-Khor International School). All the winners were selected by a panel of judges.

“When the world is going through a period of severe crisis due to Covid pandemic, we organized these competitions to give an opportunity to people to share their experiences and thus motivate themselves and the community. The response we received was overwhelming and shows that the community is facing this crisis with optimism and resilience,” said Dr Khalid bin Ibrahim Al-Sulaiti, General Manager of Katara Cultural Village. 

“It was extremely difficult for the judges to decide the winners because several entries were of very high quality and well-written. Unfortunately, we can give only a limited number of prizes,” Khalid Al-Sayed, head of the Competitions Committee, said.

“The creativity and writing skills of several participants, especially students, were amazing. From the entries, we realise that people have appreciated the efforts taken by the government to fight the Covid 19 and students are very keen to go back to their schools. The huge response will encourage us to organise more such competitions and events in the future,” Khalid Al-Sayed said.

A total of 1,831 entries were received in two categories of the competitions which were open to all citizens and residents of Qatar with valid residence permits. A total of 1,138 entries were received in the student category and 693 entries in the adult category.

There were participants of 83 nationalities, of which students were of 66 nationalities and adults of 52 nationalities.

This is the second time Katara is organising a writing competition in English for the community. It had recently organised a creative writing workshop and shorty story completion for students of English-medium schools in Qatar.

Katara also organises Arabic fiction awards, which is held annually and is the biggest prize of its kind in the Middle East region both in prize money and the number of participants. The prize-winning novels are also translated into English and French.

  • Ragaa Hamdy, a student at Rabaa Al Adawiya Secondary for Girls, took first place in the 14 – 15-year-old categor
  • Jana Ahmed Al Said from Roqaya Preparatory School for Girls, placed first in the 12 –13-year-old category.

“I was eager to participate in D’reesha’s Arabic Poetry Competition and share my poem as a way to give back to the country where I was born and have lived my whole life,” said Al Rawy. “I’m proud to have made it this far with my first attempt in poetry writing. It has boosted my self-confidence and encouraged me to continue writing.

“I was honored to have had the chance to carry the FIFA flag to the pitch, and I will cherish this memory.”

Highlighting QF’s continuous efforts to empower its students and community members through self-expression, Aljazi Al-Henzab, Community Program Manager at QF, said: “As we worked on delivering the D’reesha Performing Arts Festival, it was important for us to highlight poetry as one of the earliest uses of language in Arab history.

“This competition, which represents one of our initiatives to provide the youth with opportunities to express themselves in creative ways in Arabic, gave the young students a platform to discover their potential."

“Our partner Wanda played an instrumental role in providing the winners and runner ups with a unique experience and opportunity to shine on the pitches of Qatar stadiums in this once in a lifetime event, the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ .”

Discover the finest writing contests of 2024 for fiction and non-fiction authors — including short story competitions, essay writing competitions, poetry contests, and many more. Updated weekly, these contests are vetted by Reedsy to weed out the scammers and time-wasters. If you’re looking to stick to free writing contests, simply use our filters as you browse.

Why you should submit to writing contests

Submitting to poetry competitions and free writing contests in 2024 is absolutely worth your while as an aspiring author: just as your qualifications matter when you apply for a new job, a writing portfolio that boasts published works and award-winning pieces is a great way to give your writing career a boost. And not to mention the bonus of cash prizes!

That being said, we understand that taking part in writing contests can be tough for emerging writers. First, there’s the same affliction all writers face: lack of time or inspiration. Entering writing contests is a time commitment, and many people decide to forego this endeavor in order to work on their larger projects instead — like a full-length book. Second, for many writers, the chance of rejection is enough to steer them clear of writing contests. 

But we’re here to tell you that two of the great benefits of entering writing contests happen to be the same as those two reasons to avoid them.

When it comes to the time commitment: yes, you will need to expend time and effort in order to submit a quality piece of writing to competitions. That being said, having a hard deadline to meet is a great motivator for developing a solid writing routine.

Think of entering contests as a training session to become a writer who will need to meet deadlines in order to have a successful career. If there’s a contest you have your eye on, and the deadline is in one month, sit down and realistically plan how many words you’ll need to write per day in order to meet that due date — and don’t forget to also factor in the time you’ll need to edit your story!

For tips on setting up a realistic writing plan, check out this free, ten-day course: How to Build a Rock-Solid Writing Routine.

In regards to the fear of rejection, the truth is that any writer aspiring to become a published author needs to develop relatively thick skin. If one of your goals is to have a book traditionally published, you will absolutely need to learn how to deal with rejection, as traditional book deals are notoriously hard to score. If you’re an indie author, you will need to adopt the hardy determination required to slowly build up a readership.

The good news is that there’s a fairly simple trick for learning to deal with rejection: use it as a chance to explore how you might be able to improve your writing.

In an ideal world, each rejection from a publisher or contest would come with a detailed letter, offering construction feedback and pointing out specific tips for improvement. And while this is sometimes the case, it’s the exception and not the rule.

Still, you can use the writing contests you don’t win as a chance to provide yourself with this feedback. Take a look at the winning and shortlisted stories and highlight their strong suits: do they have fully realized characters, a knack for showing instead of telling, a well-developed but subtly conveyed theme, a particularly satisfying denouement?

The idea isn’t to replicate what makes those stories tick in your own writing. But most examples of excellent writing share a number of basic craft principles. Try and see if there are ways for you to translate those stories’ strong points into your own unique writing.

Finally, there are the more obvious benefits of entering writing contests: prize and publication. Not to mention the potential to build up your readership, connect with editors, and gain exposure.

Resources to help you win writing competitions in 2024

Every writing contest has its own set of submission rules. Whether those rules are dense or sparing, ensure that you follow them to a T. Disregarding the guidelines will not sway the judges’ opinion in your favor — and might disqualify you from the contest altogether. 

Aside from ensuring you follow the rules, here are a few resources that will help you perfect your submissions.

After you submit to a writing competition in 2024

It’s exciting to send a piece of writing off to a contest. However, once the initial excitement wears off, you may be left waiting for a while. Some writing contests will contact all entrants after the judging period — whether or not they’ve won. Other writing competitions will only contact the winners. 

Here are a few things to keep in mind after you submit:

Many writing competitions don’t have time to respond to each entrant with feedback on their story. However, it never hurts to ask! Feel free to politely reach out requesting feedback — but wait until after the selection period is over.

If you’ve submitted the same work to more than one writing competition or literary magazine, remember to withdraw your submission if it ends up winning elsewhere.

After you send a submission, don’t follow it up with a rewritten or revised version. Instead, ensure that your first version is thoroughly proofread and edited. If not, wait until the next edition of the contest or submit the revised version to other writing contests.
