Saudi Research & Marketing Group renews cooperation with Kilana

RIYADH: The Saudi Research & Marketing Group (SRMG) has renewed its cooperation agreement with the Prince Fahd Bin Salman Charity Association for Renal Failure Patients Care (Kilana).
The agreement aims to maintain the fruitful cooperation between both parties, which includes the group’s support for Kilana’s media goals.
Kilana aims to provide the best health and social services to patients with renal failure in Saudi Arabia. The media message serves as an important tool to spread awareness of the association’s goals and services, as well as the issue of renal failure, its causes, prevention and adapting to it.
As a part of the agreement, SRMG aims to promote the association’s news and programs, helping raise the income of the charity.
Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman, supervisor of Kilana, said the renewal of the cooperation agreement would help promote the objectives of the association. He explained that the media support provided by SRMG would contribute to stressing its mission to the patients who benefit from its humanitarian services.
Prince Badr bin Abdullah bin Mohammed bin Farhan Al-Saud, chairman of SRMG, said that the group has been a big supporter of Kilana since its establishment. He noted that SRMG will continue to support the association’s message, and deliver it to the public to raise awareness of the risks of this disease.

Arab News women driving cover wins further recognition in DNA Paris Design Awards

  • Arab News scooped the awards for its front page by “New Yorker” illustrator Malika Favre, which was published to mark the move to allow women in Saudi Arabia to drive
  • It has won numerous awards since its publication and been one of the most retweeted artworks celebrating women driving in the Kingdom

LONDON: Arab News has continued its success on the international awards stage by winning two honorable mentions at the DNA Paris Design Awards.

The newspaper scooped the awards for its front page by “New Yorker” illustrator Malika Favre, which was published to mark the move to allow women in Saudi Arabia to drive.

The honorable mentions were for the categories “Graphic design - Editorial” and “Graphic design - Key art (Posters, covers, illustration).”

"For Arab News to be recognised again on a global scale with this award is a great honor," Simon Khalil, global creative director at Arab News, said. “Our women drivers cover has been recognised with eight design awards so far and this highlights just how important this moment in history was for women across the Kingdom.

 “Malika Favre was the obvious choice for our cover, and her illustration brilliantly captures the significance of this moment on the day Saudi Arabia changed forever."

The illustration was commissioned by Arab News for the cover of a special souvenir edition on June 24 of last year. It has become one of the most retweeted artworks celebrating women driving in the Kingdom.

The cover has won numerous awards since it was published. In March, it was recognized by SND awards, one of the most prestigious in the industry.

In February, the cover image was recognized in the international design awards run by “HOW” magazine.

The DNA Paris Design Awards honors international architects and designers “who improve our daily lives through practical, beautiful and innovative design,” according to its website.
