About Rafa Nasiri Award for Printmaking

In the aftermath of Rafa Nasiri passing, December 2013, Nasiri Art Studio, Amman-‎Jordan, ‎sponsored by his widow May Muzaffar, poet and art critic, initiated in 2014 ‎an annual Printmaking Award for young ‎Arab artists, ages 20 to 40, wherever they ‎may be, for art works executed during one  ‎academic year. The award aims to enhance ‎the art of printmaking in the Arab ‎world and strengthen its value within the field of ‎plastic arts.‎
‎ ‎
Established in honor of the late Rafa Nasiri, Iraqi artist and printmaker, the Rafa ‎Nasiri Annual Award for Printmaking Competition identifies young Arab artists with ‎exceptional talent in graphic arts and showcase their distinguished work to a wider ‎audience. Founded in 2014, the Awards programme's initiative is to foster their ‎creativity and talent through recognition and scholarships. ‎
