 Dubai Capital of Arab Media 2020

The stamps highlight Dubai’s leadership in driving regional media industry growth in line with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. They also highlight the emirate’s status as a vibrant regional and global media hub that is home to more than 4,000 companies from across industry sectors.

The commemorative stamps, which feature the official logo and various Dubai landmarks, highlight the emirate’s leading role in shaping the development of the UAE and Arab media sector over the last two decades.

Dubai’s Selection

Dubai was selected as the ‘Capital of Arab Media for 2020’ by the Council of Arab Information Ministers at its 50th session held in Cairo in July 2019 in recognition of its leadership role in Arab media growth. At the forefront of this growth is the TECOM Group’s media clusters, Dubai Media City (DMC), Dubai Studio City (DSC) and Dubai Production City (DPC). Established in 2001, Dubai Media City is home to 2,000 media companies and 33,000 industry professionals from across the region and the world.

Dubai Press Club, another major player in the growth of the region’s media industry, has launched several initiatives to foster industry excellence. Its major initiatives include the Arab Media Forum (AMF), the region’s largest media gathering; the Arab Journalism Award (AJA); the Emirati Media Forum (EMF); and the Arab Social Media Influencers Club (ASMIC).

Despite the current global crisis, DPC has continued to collaborate with the Secretariat General of the Arab League to launch initiatives and projects aimed at promoting the skill development of media professionals.

Logo

DPC unveiled the logo for Dubai’s title as the ‘Capital of Arab Media for 2020’ during its 20th anniversary celebrations. The ceremony was held in January in the presence of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and a number of Arab information ministers, prominent officials and members of the media community. Designed by a young Emirati artist Reem Al Shamsi, a senior design student at the American University in Dubai, the logo features the title in both English and Arabic in bold letters.
