Muscat – Woman power in Oman received yet another round of acknowledgement and accolades as the fourth edition of the Woman of the Year Awards, organised by Apex Media in partnership with Perfumes and Cosmetics, was held at a glittering function at the Crystal Ballroom of Grand Millennium Muscat on Tuesday evening.
The coveted trophy – The Shining Lady (Al Mara Al Laama) – was presented by H H Dr Mona al Said, the chief guest, to winners in 30 different categories covering a range of activities wherein women have not just excelled but also showed the way forward.
From charity work to culinary distinction, fashion to finance, and start-up business to social media influence, the winners cherished their trophies and pledged to continue steadfastly on their respective journeys.
The most important award for the evening – the Lifetime Achievement Award – was presented to Dr Kaltham al Zadjali, fondly known as ‘Mama Kaltham’, for touching the lives of numerous individuals and families with her unique initiatives as a popular media personality in Oman on radio and television. ‘Mama Kaltham’ believes ‘Challenges generate determination to achieve success while obstacles in life serve as motivators’.
The evening was embellished with a trail of achievements of the other winners.
