On February 15, www.saudiaramcoworld.com announced:

“Real Arabia” Youth Digital Media Contest
Get Published—Win an iPod nano™ or iPod touch™—Ends March 31!


Either nationals of Saudi Arabia, living anywhere in the world, 24 years old or younger, or expatriates of any nationality now living in (or in the past having lived in) Saudi Arabia, 24 years old or younger.


It’s you. Your life. You know how people around the world often wonder what Saudi Arabia is really like? Is it just a place they see on TV? Is it just made up in Hollywood? Do you ever feel like you wish the world knew what you knew? What if people could catch a glimpse of something you know is true about who you are and where you live? Would it help people understand better where you come from?

Saudi Aramco World helps its readers get to know people and places, so all you have to do is—be yourself. Honesty, sincerity and creativity are more important than fancy techniques.
