Msheireb Properties is embracing the spirit of togetherness fostered by the upcoming National Day on December 18 by inviting the Qatari community to take part in two social media competitions.

The first competition, the Qatar National Day Quiz is hosted on Facebook and is open to fans of Msheireb Properties’ page, who must answer five general knowledge questions about Qatar to enter.

The multiple choice questions can be viewed and answered in Arabic and English, and everyone who answers all five correctly will be put through to a weekly draw, where three lucky winners will win an iPhone 4.

In a second competition, Msheireb Properties is inviting Qatar’s creative types to direct a music video for the specially commissioned ‘Ana Qatari’ song. Videos must be uploaded onto YouTube, and the link to the video shared on Facebook by clicking on a registration link on Msheireb’s Facebook page.

Once approved by Msheireb, the video will be posted in an online Gallery, and users can invite friends to vote for their favourites.  There is a Sony HD HandyCam for the winning entry, while three runners up will get iPod Touch MP3 players. 

Jawaher Al Khuzaie, Manager-Communications, Msheireb Properties, said: “National Day is a time when all our communities can join in reflecting how far Qatar has come in such a short space of time. Social media today represents one of the fastest growing communities in our society, so Facebook and YouTube are the ideal platforms for these competitions which are focused on the pillars of pride and understanding of Qatar.”

Full details on how to enter both competitions can be found on Msheireb’s Facebook page. The National Day quiz is open until January 1, while the deadline for submitting Ana Qatari videos is December 26.
