Designers interested in testing their skills in an international context can now enter the 20th annual Saul Bell Design Award Competition. Contest organizer Rio Grande issued an official call for entries this week, inviting submissions from designers worldwide for a deadline of October 25.
One of the most challenging contests in the industry is the bi-annual German Jewellery and Gemstone Prize. Unlike most competitions, this one offers significant cash prizes—a great incentive to one’s creativity when designing!
Kayla Lim, a third-year student of George Brown College’s Jewellery Arts program, has won the 2016 Vaccaro Family Scholarship. Sponsored by CJExpos and Beverly Hills Jewellers, the scholarship competition asked applicants to create a piece based on the theme, “An Evening in Paris,” with an estimated retail value of $1500.
