Creativity in the Time of COVID-19

During these uncertain times, many people used this time as an opportunity to unleash their creative talents. Some cooked, some painted, and others wrote or filmed. The great thing about creativity is that it has no limit.  

For Hamad Bin Khalifa University’s third challenge, we are collaborating with Al Sharq Forum to invite our youth to share their creativity with us. Applicants can submit their photography, painting, short film, poem, song, or anything else they have in mind. The creative piece they submit has to answer the following question:

“If you had ONE message to share with your previous self before the COVID-19 pandemic spread, what would it be?”

As part of the application, participants are also required to share one paragraph (150 words max) explaining how their creative piece represents their message. 


Three winners will be chosen by a group of judges. 

  1. First place: iPad mini
  2. Second place: Polaroid Camera
  3. Third place: Photo printer

All submissions will be compiled and shared on to highlight the limitless creativity that our youth possess.
