AUD Student Wins Top Honors In Montblanc’s ’Letters’ Competition


Golnoush Karimi presented with top prize of Montblanc’s UNICEF Edition Writing Instrument










A student of the American University of Dubai beat a big group of competitors to win “Letters,” the Arabic calligraphy exhibition sponsored by Montblanc. The nation-wide competition attracted participation from a number of young Arabic calligraphers.

A distinguished panel of judges selected the work of Golnoush Karimi, a student at the American University of Dubai as the winner. Other panel members included Charlie Pocock, of the Meem Gallery, William Lawrie, a Director of Islamic Arts at Christie’s, the renowned calligrapher Wissam Shawkat and Dr Salah Al Qassim, of the Dubai Culture & Arts Authority.

Golnoush received the grand prize of a Montblanc UNICEF Edition Writing Instrument as her prize. In addition, three pieces of her works will be displayed at the Montblanc boutique at Dubai Mall during the last week of the Dubai Shopping Festival.

“The awards presentation represents the culmination of the highly successful ‘Letters,’ competition which ran along the sidelines of an exhibition of art and calligraphy by artists from the UAE and the Middle East. The event was held in the Grand Atrium of Dubai Mall last September 14th through to October 3rd,” said Joe Nahhas, Regional Brand Director of Montblanc. “The competition provided an opportunity for young Arab artists to share their love for the written Arabic form.”

Montblanc recently joined hands with UNICEF in a drive to eradicate illiteracy and pledged a sum of at least AED 5.5 million ($1.5 million) towards education to ensure that children regardless of their gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic background or circumstances have access to quality education.

HH Sheikh Majid bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Dubai Culture and Arts Authority was the patron of exhibition. The event was held the Grand Atrium of Dubai Mall from September 14th through to October 3rd.
