The "Address Me Objectively" competition was launched last year with the aim of encouraging media professionals to submit objective media creative materials that deal with disability from a perspective that shuns stereotypes, according to an HCD statement.

The competition also aimed to urge the media to shed light on the obstacles facing people with disabilities and not on the disabilities themselves, focusing on the impact of environmental and behavioral obstacles and stereotypes in denying people with disabilities equal access to their rights and freedoms.

Prince Mired emphasized the media’s role in addressing stereotypes related to disability, and highlighting the experiences and contributions of people with disabilities.
