As a global recognition award for art, the Dubai Culture and Arts Authority (Dubai Culture) has launched the ‘Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Arts Awards’.
The award aims to encourage artists from around the world to participate and compete in four main categories, Arts, Creative Industries, Influencer of the Year, and Top Art Patron. It also supports the Mohammad Bin Rashid Global Initiatives and achieves its vision.
The award will also replace the Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Patrons of Arts Awards in one of its categories.
Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai said that “We want to be number one globally in all fields.” Inspired by his words the number ‘1’ was chosen as the award logo.
The logo symbolizes the spirit of art with its painting like designs and color choices. The award presents a spectrum of harmonious tones that flow smoothly and strongly.
Abdul Rahman Bin Mohammad Al Owais, chairman of the Dubai Culture board of directors, said: “The award complements many global initiatives launched by Shaikh Mohammad to promote Dubai as an incubator for art and culture.”
“This award will help us in cementing Dubai’s position as a creative and sustainable city for culture, arts, heritage, and literature, and will contribute to achieving one of the objectives of the Dubai 2021 Plan which is to ‘make Dubai a city of creative and empowered individuals, filled with pride and happiness’,” he added.
