The Murex D'or also known as the Golden Murex Award is one of the most important award ceremonies which takes place in Lebanon and honors Lebanese and Arab personalities who play a major role in the region.
The Murex is a Phoenician Symbol which represents a shellfish. It was discovered by our ancestors, the Phoenicians.
The Murex has been considered as the source of the Deep Rose color known as the Ourjouan. Phoenicians used Murex color to dye the silk and other fabrics and ship them across the world. The Murex played in major role in their trade, success and fame.
The Murex D'or award symbol is thus a symbol of success.
The Golden Murex Trophy was designed by Lebanese sculptor Nabil Helou tailored to this big event.
