The Seventh Arbaeen International Award

Photography, Documentary, Travelogue, Cyberspace Activity, Written Work, Translation

Keeping in view the unique and valuable spiritual dimensions of the Arbaeen of Imam Hussein ibn Ali (as), which inspires millions of his devotees from all over the world to participate in a rally on this day, in the year 2014 the Islamic Culture and Relations Organization (ICRO) decided to hold a transnational competition with the aim of introducing the manifestations of this great international cultural and religious event to the world. Following this decision, the secretariat of the Arbaeen International Award was established in the ICRO and the first round of this award was held with the theme of photography.

Since the idea was welcomed by the followers and devotees of Imam Hussein (as), such themes as film, travelogue, book, and cyberspace activities were also added in the following rounds in order to expand the dimensions of the Award.

With the grace of God Almighty and the blessings of Imam Hussein (as), the secretariat of the “Seventh Arbaeen International Award” officially began its activities on Monday, December 28, 2020; coinciding with the closing program of the Sixth Arbaeen International Award.

Those interested to participate in the Seventh round of this Award can send their works to the secretariat through the official website of the Award or its official social pages. The deadline for submitting works has been extended to October 2, 2021, and the Closing Program of the Seventh Arbaeen International Award will be held on October 17, 2021.

Due to the outbreak of the Corona pandemic, the Closing Program will be held with the participation of a limited number of people at the Imam Khomeini Cultural Complex, which can be reached online through the official website and the Instagram of the Arbaeen International Award.
