[Contests] Red Bull Flug Tag – Flying Contest at the Dubai Creek Park

On 23rd November 2007. Lots of time. But Red Bull shows that they plan ahead by starting an early campaign. From their website:

“Flugtag, which means “flying day” in German, challenges creative genius and team spirit with friends, coworkers or neighbors in a attempt to design and construct their own human-powered flying machine and on the day attempt to fly it. “

Emirates Today Weekly Photo Contest -Dhs.3,000/- worth of prizes

I know a friend who has splurged more than Dhs.6,000/- on a Nikon Digital SLR and accessories. He has already upgraded his camera once and still intends to get more powerful Nikon versions. He calls his obsession – NAS – Nikon Acquisition Syndrome, a term coined by Nikon enthusiasts.

Well, this weekly Emirates Today competition could be a way to get a return on his investment.

A tip: One doesnt have to spend a fortune..for as little as Dhs.250/- to Dhs.500/- one can get 6 megapixels and above digital cameras of the Touchmate, Yashica variety and they serve the purpose beautifully too! My friend has found the daylight picture quality of my Dhs.250/- Touchmate 6MP digital camera to be the same as his Dhs.6,000 Nikon. So go ahead, if you have the interest and inclination for photography…you dont have to let it hurt your pockets!
