Dubai, UAE; 15 November 2018: Following the launch of the social media competition by Dubai Tourism under the #MyDubai initiative, residents are gearing up to welcome friends and family to visit them in the city this winter.

Inviting residents to showcase the breadth and depth of Dubai’s offerings to their friends and family, the competition calls for them to take to social media to highlight why they call the emirate their home.

The competition encourages residents to submit entries that showcase their life in Dubai on the @MyDubai Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts by using #MyDubai and #MyInvite to be in with a chance of winning two Emirates return flights for their friends and family to visit them.
