Artists, writers and poets can win the chance to have their work sent into space.

The Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC) and Emirates Post have launched a competition that calls on the creative minds of the UAE to submit their pieces to go into orbit.

The 'Send to Space' competition is looking for poems, short stories and drawings to accompany Emirati astronaut Haazaa Al Mansoori on his mission to the International Space Station in September.

The competition is open to all ages and nationalities, submissions must be space-related and will be accepted until July 27.
