EBDA’A AWARD 2017 is the fifth edition of the national jewellery design competition in the UAE, hosted by International Jewellery & Watch Show in partnership with Azza Al Qubaisi, UAE's first national jewelry artist.
The Award presents a great opportunity for upcoming jewellery designers and amateurs - who are over 18 years of age, and either Emirati nationals or residents in the UAE, to showcase their talent and be mentored and inspired by the best in the business. Furthermore, it is a significant step towards promoting the capability of the Emirati jewellery market in the region.
Winners from each category will receive the Awards trophy, designed by artist Azza Al Qubaisi, and a winning certificate. They will also have the opportunity to display their designs during JWS 2017. This opportunity will also be extended to those nominated for each category and winners will be featured across media platforms via Ebda’a’s media partners.
The three winners from each category will also get to attend IGI, the Professional Jewellery Designing Course.
The progress of the winners at these courses will then be monitored on the basis of personality, potential growth and creativity, with the aim to choose one main winner.
