Message from our sponsor:

Vodafone around the world has a rich history of supporting music competitions that give talented individuals a platform for creativity and change so we are proud to sponsor the Qatar National Music Competition.

We strongly believe that art and culture is the cornerstone of any society and will be at the heart of realising the Qatar National Vision 2030. It is this that has led us to back a long list of artistic and cultural initiatives in Qatar including the Qatar UK Year of Culture 2013, the Qatar Museums Culture Pass, the Qatar National Identity Seminar and our own organised Vodafone Literary competition.

The Qatar National Music Competition will undoubtedly grow to become one of the most important global music competitions attracting impressive talent locally and from around the world. We are extremely excited for its launch in October and look forward to being a part of the discovery of the next generation of unique musicians.

Message from our patron:

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The competition we will witness among ambitious youth during this competition is an embodiment of the human development goals of our beloved country Qatar, which is the way to an overall sustainable development and the knowledge society.

We all know the role music plays in enriching humans lives, enhancing manners and elevating our taste and appreciation of beauty in everything around us.

Music is also an intellectual creative activity and human expression of beauty across cultures and societies. It is a universal language that leads to harmony, peace and understanding among civilizations in face of hatred and violence.

Dear all, we aim to encourage creativity and competition among youth to discover the best musical talents that can represent Qatar on global stages.

At the end, I extend my thanks to Katara and Sonja Park and all the team who is contributing to this competition.

Thank you,

Mr. Abdullah Al Kubaisi

Head of Arabic and Islamic Affairs

Qatar National Commission for Education, Culture and Science
