Since 2010, Delfina Foundation has partnered with MOP Foundation to offer residencies for Iranian artists who have won or been nominated for its bi-annual prize.

The Magic of Persia Contemporary Art Prize (MOP CAP) is the first award to globally recognise the talent of emerging Iranian artists, many of whom have had little exposure on the competitive international art scene. The award is designed to support and promote the career development of the most exciting young Iranian artists in the world. The residency at Delfina Foundation is associated with MOP CAP and has normally been provided for the winner and several nominated artists, through a separate application process directly to Delfina Foundation.
