Emma Lancaster, Dubai Lynx Festival Director, commented: “What this Festival has shown is that the creative industry in the Middle East is still very much alive in the face of difficult times. Dubai Lynx has once again brought together the creative community to engage, learn and celebrate whilst providing the perfect backdrop for the all important networking. It’s been a busy, uplifting Festival with some unbeatable global content and bringing it to its climax with the memorable Awards Gala last night was a fantastic way to mark the deserved winners.”
