For the 2013-2014 award edition, IEAA is pursuing its mission to offer the best career incentive to its winners with a prize that will motivate any ambitious artist.The award will be granted to an international artist and an Emirati artist.
The prize consists on a two year full representation by Sabrina Amrani Gallery. This will include one duo show in the gallery space in Madrid, the participation at an international art fair, one international group show and continuous career development throughout the representation for both of the artists.
In addition, IEAA will be organizing the unveiling of the winners’ work in Dubai in May 2014, taking care of the expenses of travel, accomodation and shipment of artworks through its exclusive partnership with Aramex. The winners will also have their artwork broadcast on ikono TV, a dedicated art channel with a coverage in 30 countries and an audience of 35 million viewers and Elevision, an innovative media platform specializing in digital signage based in the UAE with a strong focus on art content. All winners and shortlisted artists will be offered a permanent display on the IEAA online gallery, a platform that allows participants that didn’t win the visibility and recognition they deserve.
The IEAA is the United Arab Emirates' first contemporary art award open for both Emirati and international participants. Based in Dubai, the IEAA was created with the vision to provide a world class recognition for emerging artists and as a means to showcase their work by offering visibility on the international art scene. IEAA strives to contribute to the UAE's vision to position the UAE as a global hub for emerging art.
