The Ras Al Khaimah(RAK) Fine Arts Festival is all set to return for its fifth edition in February 2019. The community project was established in 2013 through an initiative of the Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi Foundation for Policy Research. It is designed to showcase the talent and work of local artists, photographers, and filmmakers in a community setting.
The not-for-profit initiative focuses on bringing the community together to celebrate art, create opportunities for cultural exchange, and support the creative and artistic sectors of Ras Al Khaimah. Competition categories for 2019 will include visual arts, film and photography.
Submissions open on August 19, 2018 and artists must note that while artistic judgments and innovations are appreciated, the Festival is a public event, and content must be respectful of and suitable for audiences of all ages.
On another note, filmmakers can still apply to the RAK fine arts short film funding initiative until July 26.
