UNESCO calls for candidatures for the UNESCO-Sharjah Prize for Arab Culture. UNESCO and the government of Sharjah would like to encourage youth to propose qualified candidates who deserve to be rewarded for their literary, scientific or artistic achievements, as well as for their global outreach devoted to promoting Arab culture and its worldwide dissemination – independent of any religious considerations. Deadline for submissions of candidatures is 31st of August.
The Prize was established in 1998 in collaboration with the Government of Sharjah (United Arab Emirates) and is now at its 15th edition. Laureates will receive $30,000 each. Taking into account the important contribution of women, please take this opportunity to propose renowned female candidates, to bring a better gender balance to the list of Laureates.
