    ICESCO Congratulates Organizers and Winners of Prince Abdullah Al-Faisal Prize for Arabic Poetry

    5 March 2024

    The Islamic World Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (ICESCO) congratulates the Board of Trustees of the Academy of Arabic Poetry at Taif University in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for successfully organizing the Prince Abdullah Al-Faisal Prize for Arabic Poetry in its fifth edition. ICESCO also extends its congratulations to the winners of the prize in its various branches in Morocco, Sudan, Egypt, and Lebanon.

    ICESCO commends the prize’s significant impact on intellectual spheres across different nations, enriching poetic creativity in the Arabic language, as demonstrated by the number and quality of the contributions from talented poets worldwide in this fifth edition.

    ICESCO reaffirms its full readiness to cooperate in such pioneering initiatives that highlight the central role of creativity and culture in preserving identity and building a bright future for generations to come, aligning with the Organization’s vision and strategic directions. Moreover, it underscores its high regard for poetry and poets, along with its keenness to support them through the signing of a partnership and cooperation agreement in 2021 with the Academy of Arabic Poetry at the Taif University, in the presence of H.R.H. Prince Khalid Al-Faisal bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Advisor to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and Governor of Makkah Region.

    In this context, ICESCO has organized numerous activities to celebrate poetry and poets, and established the ICESCO Forum of Women Poets, which brings together poetesses from across the Islamic world and beyond. Additionally, during last year’s World Poetry Day celebration, ICESCO announced the establishment of the Poetry Forum of the Islamic World and issued several poetry collections that reflect the new trends in poetry, highlighting its revival and development.
