3rd Bahrain International Quran Recitation Competition

As part of its community-involvement initiatives to support social and cultural programmes, VIVA Bahrain, through its corporate social responsibility arm, VIVA Jusoor has become the official telecom sponsor of the third Bahrain International Quran Recitation Competition. Held annually and organised by the Ministry of Justice, Islamic Affairs and Endowments, the web-based Quran recitation which has globally attracted over 7,000 participations previously, is now open for registrations until mid-November 2017.

The global reciter competition which first started in 2014, and has put Bahrain on the world map for encouraging the youth to read and recite the holy Quran, is inviting entries across two categories – youth, aged up to 17 years and adults between 17 – 40 years. Interested candidates across the globe, can submit their video entries on www.quran.bh, who will be evaluated on a set criteria by a jury panel selecting three best performers. The VIVA-sponsored competition will come to a close in May 2018 with prizes worth US$ 30,000, US$ 25,000 and US$ 20,000 awarded to the winners in addition to other social media competition prizes.

VIVA Bahrain CEO Eng. Ulaiyan Al Wetaid commented, “We are pleased to extend our support to cultural-oriented programmes that highlights our ethics and core beliefs as well as enhances cultural knowledge. The global reciter initiative is a great platform to connect and bring together thousands of people across the world, using technology and social media channels in the best possible way.
