UAE launches contest to design Arab Space Group logo

DUBAI, February 22, 2020

The UAE Space Agency has launched a special contest to design the logo of the Arab Space Cooperation Group. 
The Group, which aims to boost joint Arab space-related activities, was established in March last year on the sidelines of the second edition of the Global Space Congress in Abu Dhabi.
Open to nationals of all Arab countries, the contest challenges them to come out with creative designs that reflect their understanding of the group's vision.
It is part of the UAE Space Agency's initiatives held in line with the UAE Innovation Month, which reflects its commitment to promoting a culture of innovation, a key pillar for sustainable development. 
The last date for submitting the entries is March 10, following which a specialised committee will select four finalists. 
The winning logo design will be announced during the next Arab Space Cooperation Group meeting in March 2020.
Dr Mohammed Nasser Al Ahbabi, Director General of the UAE Space Agency, said: "The Group aims to provide a platform that brings Arab countries together to accelerate joint space-related activities."
"This contest follows this cooperative approach, as it offers talented Arabs an opportunity to share creative designs that reflect their understanding of the Group's vision," he stated.
“This contest is a great opportunity for Arab youth to contribute to a group that aims to make the Arab World flourish in the space sector. It raises the Arab’s awareness of the Group's mission and objectives, the importance of space-related activities, and the role of Space in paving the way for a bright future,” said Al Ahbabi.
The Arab Space Cooperation Group is an initiative launched by the UAE, and is currently chaired by the UAE Space Agency. It aims to provide an ecosystem to develop regional skills and competencies to work on advanced projects, and sponsor initiatives and programs to prepare the next generation of space sector leaders in the region.-TradeArabia News Service
