The Awards are open to anyone in the United Kingdom engaged in designing or working with precious metals, gemstones and other allied materials. There are three main categories for entering work and everyone is encouraged to enter these Awards which is the industry's primary competition that rewards technical excellence and design innovation.
The Competition Section Briefs for the 2018/19 Competition is now live.
Who Can Enter
For submission of work to the awards require applicants to be based and working within the United Kingdom and who are engaged in designing or working with precious metals, gemstones and other related materials. Work submitted to the competition needs to have been completed in the UK within the last entry dates of the previous competition i.e between January 2017 to January 2018.
For the purposes of these Awards and in order to judge entries fairly, individuals are judged as Senior and Junior entrants in most craft sections of the competition.
If you are undergoing training on a recognised full or part time course of study or undertaking a registered apprenticeship you will be defined as a ‘Junior’. For students only, this now includes a period of three years after completing your formal studies. All other entrants will be classed as ‘Senior’.
