We congratulate Maitha and hope the award will inspire a new generation to think critically about sustainability and its significance for our world’s security, stability, and progress.”

An award ceremony will be held on 1st March 2023 at Emirates Palace in the presence of Huda Alkhamis and representatives of TotalEnergies and several senior officials and culture partners, during which Maitha Alhammadi will be awarded for her work with AED10,000 prize.

In the UAE, we support young emerging artists by accelerating access to culture through our long-standing partner Abu Dhabi Music & Arts Foundation.”
