ADMAF’s awards are a central pillar of its education programmes – as the voices of tomorrow are strengthened, the very best are also recognised for their excellence.
Launched in 2019, the award contributes to empowering cultural industries and enhancing the contribution of young designers from the UAE to artistic renaissance, creativity and development by providing training and vocational guidance opportunities that contribute and help young people embark on their professional experiences towards professionalism.
Presented in partnership with New York University Abu Dhabi, the award gives UAE undergraduates and recent graduates the chance to create a work of art that, in the spirit of Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s work, can be publicly exhibited and enjoyed.
Established in 2014, the award recognises the outstanding innovation and achievement of young Emiratis in the field of design and architecture. The competitive award nurtures potential and encourages creative practice by providing resources and support for emerging designers and architects across the UAE.
