Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, assistant to the Speaker of the Iranian parliament, described the festival as a symbol of the “imminent collapse” of Israel, as predicted by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to occur in less than 25 years.[4] According to Mehdi Ghomi, the executive secretary of the festival, the festival will be a joint work with 2400 NGOs from Europe, North America, Latin America, and Eastern Asia.[7][2]

According to the executive secretary of the festival, it will consist of 11 categories[2] and it invites productions from around the world in the form of "posters, cartoons, websites, mobile apps, games, animated graphics and other cyber-related products", all dedicated to the collapse of Israel.[1]

Prizes[edit | edit source]

According to Mehdi Ghomi, each category winner will win $1,800, and the overall winner will be awarded $2,700.[1]
