Jameel Prize

DEADLINE:31 May 2020

The sixth edition of the Jameel Prize, run by the Victoria & Albert Museum in partnership with Art Jameel, is devoted to contemporary design inspired by Islamic tradition.


The Prize is open to designers of any age, from any background, living anywhere in the world. It is free to enter.

To be eligible for the Jameel Prize, a designer’s work must:

  • Have a clear link to the history, culture, art, craft, or design practice of the Islamic world.
  • Demonstrate outstanding skill and quality of concept, and inspire new ways of thinking about contemporary design or Islamic culture.


A group of finalists will be selected by the jury, and an exhibition of their work will open at the V&A in the summer of 2021, before touring internationally. The winner will be announced at the exhibition opening. Last year's prize was GBP £25,000.
