Wings Project

The Wings Project is an annual Abu Dhabi Art competition that supports UAE-based creative talent. Emerging artists and designers are invited to recreate the ‘Wing’ shape that forms part of the Abu Dhabi Art logo, in their own distinctive style. The winning designs are used to create innovative and exciting merchandise that is sold at Manarat Al Saadiyat Shop. With over 20,000 visitors to Abu Dhabi Art, the Wings Project offers a platform from which emerging creatives can reach new audiences.

For a chance to showcase your work to an international audience, take part in Abu Dhabi Art Wings Project 2018, where the winning designs will be used across the event’s programme on printed material and merchandise.


Winning designers will be highlighted at Abu Dhabi Art and will receive a prize of AED 5,000 and a VIP invitation to Abu Dhabi Art.
