“Postal Portraits” Photography Competition

Emirates Post invites UAE residents to participate in the Postal Portraits initiative – a photography competition that invites participants to explore the stories that Emirates Post has woven across the country.

Emirates Post stands as a symbol of bridging distances and preserving memories. A story of history, culture and companionship unfolds with each stamp, letter and postcard. The initiative is a translation to these narratives, inviting you to capture the spirit of Emirates Post in every frame.


Every 3 months, our photography competition will focus on specific themes. These are as follows:


Every month, the photographer who submits the most exceptional photograph will be awarded:
AED 2,500 + An assortment of curated giveaways
