The rules stipulate the use of natural materials in the artwork, within any of the many fields of the authentic Emirati heritage. The jury will take into consideration the number of heritage pieces used in the artwork, the degree of workmanship, and the harmony between the used materials.
The artwork should represent an aspect of the old way of life, and the dimensions of the model must range between 1 metre and 2 metres at highest.
