How to Support the GC&DC
The Goldsmiths' Craft & Design Council (GC&DC) is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO), run as a social not for profit enterprise, where all funds are used in the promotion of craftsmanship and design within the industry.
Our Patrons, Sponsors and Contributors are a vital aspect to the work, purpose and effectiveness of the GC&DC, and we remain fortunate in attracting a good range and depth of supporters each year.
GC&DC is seen as a unique and high-profile organisation that effectively serves the profession in achieving and enhancing both skills and standards in search of excellence. The GC&DC consistently attracts a wide audience of supporters and entrants. In 2019/20, the GC&DC had 79 sponsors and over 650 individual entries in the competition. The Awards are seen as the highlight of the calendar year in recognition of craft and design skills within the industry and are recognised as a career pinnacle for anyone winning an award. This is the main reason they are perceived as the 'Oscars of the industry'.
The Goldsmiths' Craft and Design Council invites interest from like minded businesses or individuals aligned with its ethos of promoting excellence in design and high-end craftsmanship. If you or your business or organisation would like to support the GC&DC as part of the Goldsmiths' Craftsmanship & Design Awards, please contact Brian Hill for further details.
