Upcoming award

WOMEN. IRAN. The second edition of the BEHNAM-BAKHTIAR AWARD focuses on the role, life and identity of Iranian women both inside and outside the country. Women have always played fundamental, crucial, and representative roles in the country’s history. We invite artists to explore the life of the modern Iranian woman and to use their creative skills to examine this subject.

We leave it to the artists to interpret WOMEN. IRAN. and to portray their vision, hopes and dreams. Artists are free to use any medium in developing a body of works for submission.

The Award is open to every artist of Iranian descent living in or outside of Iran. The submissions will be accepted from 11th of December 2020 to 30th of June 2022.
