ABU DHABI // A record number of nominations have been received for the Sheikh Zayed Book Award, with more than a month left for submissions.
Nominations for the award be accepted until October 1. As of today, organisers have received 881 nominations from 42 countries.
After the nominations window closes, the organisation will break up into judging panels to assess the nominated works.
All nominated works must have been published in the last two years and should not have previously received any international awards.
The work must be written in Arabic, except for works nominated for the best translated works award.
The Sheikh Zayed Book Award’s first instalment was organised in 2007 to promote scholarship and creativity in Arab culture.
