The American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) has released the deadlines for the 2017 Spectrum Awards. Interested entrants must have mail-in entries to the AGTA Dallas office by June 30, 2017, and the New York drop-off deadline is July 11, 2017—the specific location will be announced at a later date. If hand-delivering the entry, it is important to note that all paperwork and payments are due to the Dallas office by June 30.
The AGTA Spectrum Awards are a prestigious competition open to companies and individuals in Canada and the United States, and are divided in two categories: Spectrum (finished jewellery with catetories like bridal, business/day wear, classical, evening wear, and men’s wear) and Cutting Edge Awards (loose gemstones with categories like other faceted, classic gemstones, innovating faceting, carving, objects of art, phenomenal, pairs, and suites).
