Voting for the Ahlan! Awards Dubai Is Now Open
Vote now for the Ahlan! Awards Dubai!

The people of Dubai have spoken! Ahlan! readers have nominated their favourite people and places across the Emirate and with shortlists in 21 categories, boy did they nominate a bunch!

Now it's time to vote!

As people's choice awards, the Ahlan! Awards Dubai offer residents the chance to rave about the things they love most, from their favourite hotel or club, to the personalities they can't get enough of, and with amazing nominations in each category, the choice is yours indeed!

After the public nominations have now been shortlisted, you can cast your votes online in three easy steps: 1) Log in, 2) select a category, 3) click on the nominee you like best and vote - it's as simple as that!

You can vote once per category, but for all categories across the board. In fact, the more categories you vote for, the higher your chances are of winning the Dhs10,000 prize Ahlan! will be giving away to one lucky voter!

The candidate with the most votes in each category will be announced the winner at Ahlan! Award Dubai celebrations on 15 October.
