The winner will be invited to Abu Dhabi as VIP media to cover the week's high-profile events.

Welcoming an expected 30,000 people from 150 countries to high-level panels, plenaries and events, the week promises to be an exciting and busy one — and Masdar wants you to be there blogging and tweeting about all the action.
