Each winner will get the chance to have their artwork commissioned, permanently installed and displayed in the ADNOC campus.

Five artists will be selected to receive a cash prize of AED 50,000 and will have the budget covered to produce the final installation.

A panel of judges of distinguished art experts in the region will lead the process of shortlisting 10 artists before the public and judges shortlist the five finalists.

The competition is open to established and aspiring artists, architects, sculptors and/or designers, UAE Nationals or UAE Residents and those 18 years old and above.

You’ll need to hurry as submissions are only open till 20 June, 2021.
