The Goldsmiths' Craft & Design Council (GC&DC) is a flagship organisation for the industry that continues to promote, support and enhance skills and excellence across every aspect and activity in the precious metals profession. The Council achieves this through its annual competition, abiding by its original remit and primary aim; to promote and enhance excellence in craftsmanship and design.

This competition has helped to launch the careers of many eminent craftspeople in the profession and are the only peer reviewed awards in the industry's calendar. Fondly known as the 'Oscars of the Industry' they reward outstanding technical skill and design ability. The Awards are open to anyone in the United Kingdom engaged in designing or working with precious metals, gemstones and other related materials. The competition covers all areas of activity; 2D and 3D Design and 3D Craft categories and we encourage everyone to enter.
