Second Cycle

In February 2014, the award announced the beginning of its second cycle to cover the mosques within the Gulf countries with an approach that draws inspiration from local traditional historical contexts, and adheres rather faithfully to these contexts’ architectural languages and principles, but also update them to address contemporary functional needs and visual sensibilities. Nominated mosques were divided into three categories; Central Mosques, Jumaa Mosques, and Local Mosques. In April 2016, jurors have met for 3 days and filtered the nominated mosques (122 mosques) and came out with the long list (44 Mosque). Consequently, shortlist (13 Mosque) has come out after the filtration the longlist. Finally, the three awarded mosques were chosen. In March 2017, Under the patronage of HRH Prince Sultan bin Salman and HRH Prince Khaled Alfaisal the ceremony took a place in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
