[ spotlight ] The Iranian artists whose work has been featured here are among the 25 shortlisted for the 2011 Magic of Persia Contemporary Art Prize. Next, the artists will present in March a selection of their work at a three-day event in Dubai. The judges will select five to ten finalists who will exhibit at the Royal College of Art in London October 11-15, 2011 -- Christie's will conduct an auction of all of the finalists' work on the last evening. Proceeds will be divided between the artists and the Magic of Persia Contemporary Art Prize. The winner -- who gets a solo show at the Saatchi Gallery in London in Autumn 2012 -- will be announced by Ali Khadra after the auction.
