Emerging Artist Prize


Emerging Artist Prize – 6th Edition

Shine Bright, Emerging Visionaries!

The 6th edition of WAD Emerging Artists Prize in partnership with Rove Hotels is all about spotlighting rising artists from the region and beyond, offering them a unique platform to display their talents and propel their careers forward.

This year's theme, "Cultural Crossroads," encourages artists to explore and celebrate various cultures and traditions from around the world. The Emerging Artist Prize is now accepting submissions from talents worldwide. The inspiration for the theme comes from the brand’s connection to the region. It thrives on exchanging ideas, art, and traditions with its diverse population.

You want to be the next winner?

Submit your digital masterpieces by April 1st exploring "Across Cultures" for a chance to showcase your art at WAD25 and win prizes. Categories include digital paintings, photos, animations & 3D art fusing traditions. The best submissions will be chosen, up to a maximum of 10 artworks. All selected artworks will expose their art at Rove Hotels' exclusive Emerging Artist Prize area at World Art Dubai between 2nd and 5th May 2024.

Adding even further to the excitement, one lucky winner will receive an exclusive opportunity to showcase their artwork at World Art Dubai 2025 in their own complimentary space.
