UAE stages first camel beauty contest

10,000 camels (the ‘ships of the desert’) have been lined up for a beauty parade in the United Arab Emirates!

According to bbc.co.uk, “The United Arab Emirates has held its first national beauty contest for camels with a prize fond of about $27,000 and various trophies for the winners”.

Camels from Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and Saudi Arabia will strut their stuff before a panel of expert judges who will decide which owners should be awarded prize money totalling around 9.5 million dollars. Apparently one hundred cars are also up for grabs!
