Fann at AUH

The Approach

In commemoration of the ‘Year of Zayed’, we have proposed an activation that would encourage public participation and highlights Abu Dhabi Airports’ initiative to encourage and promote art in the region. The competition is built around five values that represent and reflect His Highness’ key teachings, they are:

  • Wisdom
  • Respect
  • Sustainability
  • Human Development
Our approach is to enlist art entries from universities, schools and aspiring artists representing any or all of the above listed themes. Submissions will be held online and the final selection will be recreated in large scale at the Airport.


Due to the high demand and interest of different entities in joining the FANN AUH art competition, Abu Dhabi Airports has decided to extend the submissions period. The new deadline for submission will be 27th February, and the winners will be announced on the 6th of March 2018. Good luck!
