IEAA is the United Arab Emirates’ first contemporary art award open for both Emirati and international participants. Based in Dubai, the International Emerging Artist Award 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 also to contribute to the UAE’s vision to position the UAE as a global hub for emerging art.
