The competition opens up for jewellery designers.
Contemporary jeweller EC One’s annual competition rewards new jewellery designers with the opportunity to have their work sold in EC One boutique stores across London.
Jewellery graduates can enter by posting one image that best represents their work and a 100 word blurb on the EC One’s Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/econejewellery). Deadline for entries is September 30.
The top ten shortlisted entries will be posted on the company’s website and blog to let fans vote for the best designs.
To enter the competition, participants must have graduated from a design course in the past two years and should be looking to pursue a career as an independent jewellery designer.
The prize will include cost payments when pieces sell, promotion, manufacturing advice from the company’s in-storeworkshop, and business and sales advice.
Previous winners Clarice Price Thomas who won in 2011 and Myia Bonner who won in 2010 have gone on to be selected as part of 2012’s KickStart Event.
