Sculpture Competition for UAE resident sculptors around the the new prize trophy Dubai Muhr Awards

The Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) is offering UAE resident sculptors the chance to gain international recognition by shaping and crafting the new prize trophy for the annual Muhr Awards for Excellence in Arab Cinema.

‘Muhr’ means young horse in Arabic, and represents the nobility, spirit and rich Arabian heritage of the region. The chosen design must reflect a theme of excellence in film, and convey strength and creativity.

DIFF’s Artistic Director and Coordinator General of the Muhr Awards, Masoud Amralla Al Ali, commented on the decision to commission a design via competition: “A major part of DIFF’s mandate, promoting and nurturing Arab cinema, stems from our belief that this region is inherently overflowing with creativity. Calling upon UAE artists to create the Muhr award trophy is one of the ways we can reinforce this message. For inspiration and innovation, we need look no further than our own community, which has given DIFF so much support and enthusiasm since its inception.”

The winning sculptor will be fully recognized by DIFF ensuring international recognition. The sculptor’s name will be engraved on each trophy with other benefits such as invitations to the Opening Red Carpet Gala screening and reception and the Muhr Awards Ceremony.

Interested applicants are invited to download the entry form from the DIFF website:, and email or post entry forms no later than September 15, 2007.

The fourth edition of the Dubai International Film Festival will run from December 9-16, 2007.
