This momentous prize takes two years to produce each time, involving new and established Iranian artists from all over the world taking part in the open call, for which there is no charge to enter, as well as an impressive scope of arts heavyweights on the judging panel. Magic of Persia have been running educational and cultural activities for ten years now, celebrating their tenth birthday this year.
