In addition to this section, please see below for suggested craft sections and awards that you can also enter the same piece into if suitable / relevant.

Entry Form Requirements

There will be placeholders on the entry form for you to explain your design concept and the tools or techniques / processes that you have used. We encourage entrants to use these placeholders wisely. The information you provide will be ensure that judges can make informed decisions. 

The placeholders are: 

  • Material information: Materials used to produce the piece/s. (Max 150 words) 
  • Processes used to produce the piece/s: It is important that you write down all the techniques you have used to make your piece and especially whether any elements are created using technology. This will be used in the judging process and you may be at a disadvantage if it is unclear how the piece was made. (Max 150 words)

In addition, if another craftsperson helped to finish / create your entry (i.e. polishing / setting) they may enter your piece as a separate entry under the relevant craft section (i.e s.20 Polishers) This is a great way to champion the crafts and the collaborative nature of our industry!
