100,000 AED Prize for Theatre Creativity from the Department of Culture in Sharjah

The Department of Culture in Sharjah has announced the start of receiving applications from playwrights from the GCC countries to participate in the 2021 Sharjah Theatre Writing Award. In 1996, at the seventh session of Sharjah Theater Days, the Department of Culture and Information created the Sharjah Theater Composition Award based on the recommendations adopted by the committees emanating from the activities of the Sharjah Theater Days Festival. As theater mirrors society, it is important that the reality of society is reflected in local theatres. These recommendations are consistent with the visions and guidance of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi Member of the Supreme Council of the Union and Ruler of Sharjah, and they aim to support and encourage innovators in the GCC area and extend bridges of communication with them to continue being creative and interactive with the cultural and theater media, the recommendations serve as an appreciation of writers and playwrights in the GCC area.

About Department of Culture Sharjah:

His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi issued an Emiri Decree No. (20) on April 30, 1981, for establishing the "Cultural Department," which later became known as Department of Culture and Information after initiating the artistic work efforts and expanding the base of it to the citizens throughout the country.
