Gold, Silver, Time and 3D Space are the categories in a competition that aims to promote the best traditions of handicraft, organised by the Polish Handicraft Guild in partnership with the MTC International Fair Centre.
The competition is open to jewellers, goldsmiths and watchmakers who make original products and/or restore and renovate antiques, and to jewellery designers working in 3D. Assuming that an artisan/artist cannot create something good without a good idea and that a good designer must be good at jewellery craft, the organisers are putting a premium on getting these two communities together.
The competition has two stages: first, the Competition Committee of academics, scholars and jewellers with unquestionable achievements to their name will select three equal nominees in each category; then the public will vote for the pieces they like on a dedicated Facebook profile.
Apart from diplomas and medals, the winners will receive attractive cash and in-kind prizes from the sponsors.
