Fourth edition of the Noon Arts Award open for submissions
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 12 - 08 - 2020

Now being held for the fourth consecutive year, the Noon Arts Award is open for submissions. Organized by the Collage Talent Center at the Sharjah Ladies Club, this prestigious award is presented to UAE-based female artists who are working in the fields of painting, photography, and digital artworks.
Because I Can
This year the theme of the competition is the phrase ‘Because I Can', chosen in recognition of the difficult times the global community has lived through as a result of COVID-19. The artworks submitted need to showcase the positive impact the artist has made through supporting, inspiring or offering hope to others, or overcoming obstacles and challenges in their own lives.
Fatima Alnaqbi, collage assistant manager at Sharjah Ladies Club said: "This year the Noon Arts Awards are all about recognizing those who have made a positive impact on the world around them.
"We want to celebrate both women's art and the power of humanity, their ability to give the light of hope to others who are suffering. ‘Because I Can' is a timeless phrase. It's about empowerment and benefitting society, and we can't wait to see how this phrase inspires the female artists of the UAE."
Open for Submissions
Submissions will be accepted until October. The competition is open to all women artists based in the UAE and who are over the age of eighteen. Paintings, photographs, and digital artworks will all be accepted and judged on their adherence to the theme and the skill and enthusiasm they convey.
The first-place winner will receive a prize of AED7,000, with second place earning AED5,000 and third place being awarded AED3,000. There will also be a special ‘People's Choice' category, with the winning artist receiving a prize of AED2,000.
A Digital-Only Event
While this year's competition will be held remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing, this is the first time the entire event will be held online. The virtual exhibition will allow people from across the region to view the artworks from the safety of their own homes, while the awards ceremony itself will be live-streamed to avoid people congregating.
The Collage Talent Center is the creative hub of the Sharjah Ladies Club, and hosts various classes related to the arts and culture. The Center aims to teach new skills and nurture talent, providing a creative safe space for those with a passion for learning. — ATEOSWire
