The only race that has no finishing line is the race for excellence; therefore this competition was adopted to launch talented artists seeking excellence.

This event falls in line with Dubai’s strategy that aims at adopting talents and nurturing them. We believe that the success of Dubai stems from the success of its inhabitant as Emiratis or expatriates.

The Sheikha Manal Young Artist Award Art Competition Award gives a chance to the youth to present their works to the local and international art scene and the support we provide will help them grow and develop their skills tremendously.

The Art & Talent center at the Dubai Ladies Club is proud in acting a pioneering role in the field of art and that has led to the promotion of the cultural and intellectual life in the United Arab Emirates.

I would like to present my thanks and congratulations to all participants, supporters and judges panel who have presented the best to achieve the goals for which the objectives of this initiative was launched for.
