Al Burda Awards
The Al Burda Award’s growth over the last fifteen years attests to the success of its founding principle: to be the definitive platform that seeks to gather minds and celebrate the varied disciplines of Islamic art. Through the Award, the UAE has engaged with the artistic communities of nineteen countries from around the world, and stood as a pillar for the recognition of contemporary Islamic artists from ten Arab nations.
