To commemorate the long history of state and community-building, the West Asia-North Africa (WANA) Institute and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation (KAS) invite young Jordanians (up to the age of 28) to submit essays and photos and to convey what 100 years of Jordan means to them.

Rules of Submission

You are invited to submit a creative piece in one of three tracks: 1) Arabic essays, 2) English essays, or 3) photographs.
