Muharraq Creative City of Design - Open Call

Muharraq has recently been awarded by UNESCO Creative Cities Network as Creative City of Design. Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities has the pleasure to launch a call for designers to propose a logo to represent the designation of "Muharraq Creative City of Design".

Muharraq is a pioneer city where the combination of history, art and architecture served as the primary inspiration to revamp urban life. With its unique Arabic character combined with international standards of modernity, Muharraq plays a special role in the Gulf Region. The city presents many opportunities for creativity throughout various types of public events; all of which serve to reskill Bahrainis, build cultural confidence and create synergies on an international level. The magnificent structures are not merely an imprint of the significant past but also an inspiration. As a center of trade, Muharraq has a multicultural factor where different nations interact and have lived together with the local community for centuries.

The winning logo will be used for all the upcoming events of this designation. The proposed design should consider that:

  1. The logo will be used on the right side of the official logo of UNESCO
  2. Lower caption of the logo will mention: "Designated UNESCO Creative City"
