The artists who desire to compete at the festival are required to design the phrase “Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah” in Persian, Arabic or English letters in various calligraphic, iconic, typographic, or handwritten forms.

The Iranian graphic designers and artists Sedaqat Jabbari, Ebrahim Haqiqi, Jalil Rasouli and Masoud Nejabati are to serve at the festival’s jury panel. The panel is also to host two foreign artists.

The festival will award a prize of USD 5,000 in cash to the first winner , while the second will receive USD 4,000, and the third one is to pick up USD 3,000.

The Iranian film company Nour-e Taban, which is the producer of Majid Majidi’s ongoing project Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), and Tehran Municipality’s Beautification Organization are to organize the festival.

Majidi’s religious blockbuster focuses on Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) life from childhood until prophethood.

Historical documents and facts of Majidi’s recent cinematic rendition have been compiled with the help of scholars, historians and clerics from different countries including Iran, Morocco, Tunisia, Lebanon, Iraq and Algeria over a year.

Produced by Mohammad Mehdi Heidarian, the film has been set to be released in Persian, Arabic and English.
