RIYADH: The Saudi Ministry of Culture has launched a competition to design a logo for the Madinah-based Prince Mohammed bin Salman Global Center for Arabic Calligraphy.

Designers, calligraphers and artists interested in participating in the contest should register through the link https://engage.moc.gov.sa/mbs_design_competition until Aug. 11.

The winning logo will receive a prize of up to SR100,000 ($26,662). The contest aims to promote talented youth and encourage them to make good use of their skills.

The contest will take place in three phases. In the first phase, the submission of proposals through the dedicated electronic platform will be accepted, screened and nominated for the next stage.

In the second phase, experts will conduct workshops to guide the selected artists in making the final presentation to a jury. The panel of judges will then select the winning logo.

Interested candidates should keep in mind the following guidelines, which are also available on the website: The design should be made using Arabic calligraphy; the name of the center should be in Arabic and English and positioned next to the logo; the proposed design should be digital and high quality; the logo should be submitted in the suggested base color, black on a white background, and white on a black background; and the logo should be made in both small and large sizes.

The Prince Mohammad bin Salman Global Center for Arabic Calligraphy contains a museum, an exhibition hall and an institute dedicated to the art of Arabic calligraphy.

The center also includes a forum for Arab and Muslim calligraphers.

The center aims to become a leading international center for Arabic calligraphy under the ministry’s supervision, cementing the Kingdom’s status as a pioneer in the field and the official home of Arabic calligraphy.

It seeks to provide a cultural and educational environment for people interested in the art of Arabic calligraphy.
