In this context, Katara General Manager Dr Khalid bin Ibrahim al-Sulaiti emphasised that Katara is keen to continue its cultural and societal role in view of the current circumstances.
He said, “We believe that culture is one of the front lines to combat the spread of this epidemic and thus we seek to preserve the safety of society by a culture that cannot be isolated from what the community is experiencing, it is rather an effective tool to support all efforts made for the safety of all.”
Al-Sulaiti indicated that Katara presented through its accounts on the social media network a series of competitions and activities to various groups of society that would contribute to spreading awareness and education.
He also said that Katara exceeded the local geography of this situation and presented international competitions, which confirm its interest in the human being wherever there are regardless of geographical borders.

The second bundle of Katara competitions is the writing competition in English, as the first winner will receive QR10,000; the second will receive QR7,000 and the third winner QR5,000.
In the “60 seconds” Katara Awareness Competition, participants have to film a video using mobile phone and tell an 
educational story.
One of the conditions of this competition is the video must be in high-quality horizontal format taken by the participant himself.
The winners will be selected based on the quality, method of shooting and the content of the story presented, which should be inspiring and out of the ordinary.
The first place winner in this competition will receive QR20,000, the second place winner will receive QR15,000, while the third place 
winner will receive QR10,000.
The deadline for submitting these videos is April 30.

Five best drawings will be picked to be printed on Qatar postage stamps, and each winning child will receive a prize of QR2,500. The last date for submitting works is April 30 via e-mail to: kids2020kataraph.com
Katara - the Cultural Village also presents, as part of its activities, “Tamour & Tamoura” a 3D animated series for children and young adults.
The idea of the series revolves around a kingdom of dates fruit, as the heroes in this animation series live from dates, as the adventures of the series inspire children how to correct mistakes and behaviours.
The topics of the episodes do not only approach the negative and critical side, but also address positive topics that reinforce educational, human and social concepts, which constitute guidelines for children in an 
entertaining way. (QNA)
