Established in 1998, the UNESCO-Sharjah Prize for Arab Culture rewards, each year, two laureates – individuals, groups or institutions – who, through their work and outstanding achievements, endeavour to disseminate greater knowledge of Arab art and culture.

The UNESCO-Sharjah Prize for Arab Culture rewards two laureates each year. To be successful, the individuals, groups or institutions must have contributed significantly towards the development, dissemination, and the promotion of Arab culture in the world.

Winners are chosen by the Director-General of UNESCO, on the recommendation of an international Jury of experts. Established in 1998, previous winners of the prize include the Samandal Association, Lebanon, a volunteer-based NGO dedicated to the promotion of the art of comics and graphic novels, Shubbak: A Window on Contemporary Arab Culture, UK, and the Islamic Library in Spain which provides a centre for teachers, researchers, theologians and students working in Arab and Arab-Andalusian studies. The Arab British Centre in the UK is also a past winner.

‘Culture has a fundamental role to play in rising to the challenges of our century. In the face of global fractures, and the paralysis of some institutional platforms, it is a common language that breaks down barriers’
