London (I-Newswire) October 4, 2013 - The awards, which are overseen by an expert panel of judges, will recognise and honour individuals and foundations that have made outstanding philanthropic contributions in the Middle East and the Arab region of North Africa.

Winners will be announced and presented with their award at a glittering ceremony and gala dinner to be held Park Hyatt Hotel, Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi on December 10.
Chief Executive Officer of ADIB, Tirad Al Mahmoud, said: "Individual and institutional philanthropy have become much more encouraged and acknowledged in the Middle East in recent years. Through last year's successful awards, we have witnessed first-hand remarkable people and organisations who have offered a level of unwavering support and commitment to making a difference - socially and culturally - in this region and beyond.
He added: "We are honoured to be the backbone for these awards as it provides an ideal platform to recognise and reword the efforts of those who have created real change in our society. Philanthropy and community engagement are at the heart of our values at ADIB and they are an integral part of our promise to bring 'banking as it should be' to the UAE community."
