Documentary to Kids programming, the competition is fierce and celebrated.

The event schedule includes a full day of arrivals followed by intensive judging rounds from 9 AM to

6 PM, and a press conference to wrap up the second day. The final day will offer opportunities for

travel and site visits, providing a taste of Abu Dhabi’s rich culture and hospitality.

The Semi-Final round of judging, coordinated globally by the Academy, will see television

professionals invited to participate as jurors. These jurors will screen approximately 6-7 hours of

dedication and commitment to supporting the arts in various forms on local, regional, and

international levels. This event also enhances Abu Dhabi’s ambitious vision to be a global hub for

creatives from all over the world.

Dr. Nashwa Al Ruwaini added that the number of judges from the Arab world accredited by the

International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (Emmys), which exceeds 200 personalities, is
