The National - News - - ARTS & LIFESTYLE -

The Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs and In­ter­na­tional Co-oper­a­tion has an­nounced the launch of a na­tional com­pe­ti­tion to se­lect the best de­sign for a gift the UAE will present to the United Na­tions in New York, dubbed the “Gift of Zayed”. The na­tion­wide com­pe­ti­tion is an op­por­tu­nity for all Emi­rati na­tion­als and res­i­dents in the UAE to sub­mit de­signs that sym­bol­ise the core pur­pose of the United Na­tions, based on global unity. In con­junc­tion with the Year of Zayed, the UAE will present two gifts to the UN, to go on dis­play at the UN head­quar­ters in New York and at the UAE’s mis­sion head­quar­ters to the UN. The third win­ning work will be put on dis­play at the Min­istry premises. The com­pe­ti­tion will give three par­tic­i­pants (in­di­vid­u­als/in­sti­tu­tions/groups) the op­por­tu­nity to show their art­works to the world and to re­ceive spe­cial train­ing in arts at a global art school or col­lege. In 2001, the UAE pre­sented the UN with two sculp­tures. Re­quests to reg­is­ter for the com­pe­ti­tion should be sent to za­yedgift@ mo­faic.gov.ae.
