The Sheikha Manal Young Artist Award
IEDEA partnered with The Cultural Office of H.H. Sheikha Manal bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum (TCO) as Advisor to the Sheikha Manal Young Artist Award. Under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Manal bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, President of UAE Gender Balance Council, President of Dubai Women Establishment, and wife of His Highness Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs UAE, the Sheikha Manal Young Artist Award, launched in 2006, an annual visual arts competition which aims to encourage, recognise and promote emerging young artists from across the UAE.
