Jordan, Algeria and Syria, who thankfully submitted the applications at the end of December 2021. The
decision of the Jury members was based on the fact that Eman's art works "own a sort of peculiarity
reflected in the simplicity and serenity of the composition, despite her reliance on a mixture of multiple techniques that combine photography, drawing, engraving and printmaking. in addition to adopting the experimental side in her use of graphic arts while applying on canvas. She sometimes achieves success by meddling with chance"
