The nominations for the fifth ADA will open on August 30 and end on September 27.
The organising committee announced the beginning of its awareness campaigns for the award on Wednesday in the capital.
The awards are given to people in recognition of their good deeds for the community and unsung heroeswho live in the society and serve them selflessly.
The awards are not pre-determined by category, so any one moment of goodness can be recognised in any field from healthcare to environmental protection, from animal welfare to education, from sport and volunteering.
Anyone can be nominated, regardless of age, gender or nationality.
In 2008, 47,000 people were involved in the process in which 18 per cent were women. “But this year we would more extensively approach them through different mediums of communications and urge them to come for the event,” said Maryam Amiri, strategic communications advisor at the Executive Affairs Authority and a member of the organising committee.
“This year our objective is to ease the nomination procedures and make it more accessible, and promote online registrations.
“There were 111 nomination stations in 2008, but this year there would be 124 in different locations of the emirate,” Amiri said.
Forty seven people from various backgrounds and age groups have been honoured with the award since its inception in 2005. Among the eight recipients of 2008, the ratio was 50:50 for Emiratis and expatriates.
A more user-friendly website has been designed — www.abudhabiawards.ae where one can register and obtain or one can contact on 8003331.
