Comma Press shortlisted for Arab British Centre Award for Culture 2019

We’re delighted to announce we are one of the organisations shortlisted for the Arab British Centre Award for Culture 2019.

The Arab British Centre Award for Culture is a biennial prize that celebrates those who have significantly contributed to the dissemination of Arab arts and culture and furthered dialogue and understanding of the Arab world in the United Kingdom. The prize was established in 2008 for the purpose of raising awareness of contemporary Arab culture in the UK and to give financial support to individuals and organisations at a crucial stage of their career.  The Award has previously been granted to Saqi Books, Zaytoun, Liverpool Arab Arts Festival, Al Jazeera English, playwrights Hassan Abdul Razak and Hannah Khalil, and Arts Canteen.

A bespoke trophy as well as a cash prize of £2500 and a British Council travel grant of £1500 will be awarded to the winner of each category during the Award Ceremony reception on 26 September 2019. A further British Council travel grant of £1000 will be awarded to a runner up in each category. The Award for Culture is supported by The Arab League.
