Competition Q&A Catch-up

If you weren't able to join us for the online Q&A session, you can still catch up on the event via the link below!

We ran through the 2022 competition timeline and answered your questions about the competition and awards. Peter Crump & Pamela Statham, GC&DC Trustees and Judges alongside Brian Hill & Banita Mistry, GC&DC Consultants, ran through some helpful tips and considerations for entrants in a lively and informative discussion. 

Welcome to the 2021/22 Competition

With 33 competition categories, 3 new Patron Awards and a new Special Council Bursary, the GC&DC Competition 2021/22 returns and is packed with even more in store for everyone’s interest and participation.

Following an incredibly successful 20/21 Competition, this year we return with to the Goldsmiths' Centre and Goldsmiths' Hall for a Competition similar to the years prior to the pandemic. We learnt plenty from the last Competition and will be continuing with digital judging for all the 2D sections and a more comprehensive entry form - both of which were very well received by the judges and our entrant community. For all the 3D entries we are returning to our recognised format of in person judging at the Goldsmiths’ Centre. 

We plan to host a Q&A session in December for entrants before the Christmas break, so please do keep your eyes peeled for more information on this. Additionally, we encourage you to add our email address ( to your contacts list to ensure that you receive all our updates and news of our events. 

We look forward to receiving your entries, having another great competition and celebrating your successes and achievements at our Awards evening and exhibition at Goldsmiths’ Hall
