Emirati artists get chance to spread their wings

Competition winners will have their work seen everywhere during Abu Dhabi Art.

Emirati artists and designers are being invited to enter a competition to have their skills showcased in front of an international audience at a prestigious art fair.

The winners of this year’s Abu Dhabi Art Wings Project will see their designs used on Abu Dhabi Art’s promotional materials, advertising, merchandise and collateral.

“This project brings together talented Emiratis and offers them a chance to have their work displayed throughout a prestigious international art event,” says Hind Khouri, the marketing officer for the Abu Dhabi Tourism & Cultural Authority, which is organising the event. “In turn … we aim to promote Abu Dhabi, its artists, designers and creative hubs as the cultural destination it is,” she adds.

Designs, which have to feature creative concepts inspired by the Abu Dhabi Art wings logo, must be submitted by this Saturday.

The fifth Art Abu Dhabi will take place at the Manarat Al Saadiyat exhibition space from November 20 to 23. For more information and competition guidelines visit www.abudhabiartfair.ae
