Sheikh Hamad Award

New Prize: Sheikh Hamad Award for Translation and International Understanding $1000.00

Sheikh Hamad Award for Translation and International Understanding was founded in Doha, Qatar (2015). It is an international prize run by an independent board of trustees, impartial panels of judges, and a professional steering committee. We aspire to inculcate a culture of knowledge and dialogue, develop international understanding, and promote mature intellectual interaction and exchange between Arabic and other world languages through the medium of translation. We seek to reward merit and excellence, encourage creativity, honor translators and acknowledge their role in strengthening the bonds of friendship and cooperation amongst peoples and nations of the world, spreading the values of diversity, pluralism and openness, and upholding the highest moral and ethical standards.
