Sharjah24: His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, honoured on Tuesday morning the Arab poets who won the 2022 "Qawafi Award", in Dr. Sultan Al Qasimi Centre.
His Highness welcomed the guests, pointing out how precious the centre is, for it holds manuscripts and records, research papers, and various other collections.
His Highness the Ruler congratulated the award winners, 12 poets from various Arab countries, pointing out that His Highness had picked the winners carefully.
His Highness, the Ruler of Sharjah, honoured the winners, after which each of them recited his/her winning poem, addressing in their poems many topics such as homeland, brotherhood, sadness, and others. Later, His Highness took the attendees on tour through Dr. Sultan Al Qasimi Centre.
It is worth mentioning that the award's idea came as a generous initiative from His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah, under the auspices of the Department of Culture (SDC), through the selection of poems published monthly by the department's "Qawafi" magazine concerned with poetry, which allowed poets from the Arab World to publish their poems.
His Highness directed that the winning poems be published in a publication that includes the published poems from January to December 2022.
