The final evaluation ceremony of World Craft Council's Award of Excellence for Handicrafts in the Asia Pacific region will be held in Iran in early August for the third time.

Artisans form various countries including Kuwait, Oman, Jordan, Lebanon, Bahrain, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Yemen and Iran will be competing for the awards in the West Asia Sub-Region division, Mehr News Agency reports.

Slated for August 1 to September 15, the competing artworks will be judged by a jury composed of representatives from Iran, Oman and Kuwait. More members are expected to join the team.

Iran has participated in the contest with a collection of 70 top works of art selected from the 356 items awarded at the 2017 National Quality Award for handicrafts, ILNA reported.

The awards aim to ensure that when consumers buy awarded handicrafts, they are buying high quality, culturally-authentic products that have been manufactured in a socially-responsible manner with respect for the environment.

Established by UNESCO in 2001, the event aims to encourage artisans to produce handicrafts using traditional skills, patterns and themes in an innovative way in order to ensure the continuity and sustainability of these traditions and skills.
