Art Jewelry Forum 2011 Emerging Artist Award - Entries Close 30th September

Now in its twelfth year, the Art Jewelry Forum (AJF) Emerging Artist Award offers a $5,000 prize to an emerging contemporary jewellery artist. The purpose of the award is to acknowledge promise, innovation, and individuality in the work of an emerging jewellery artist, and to help advance the artist’s career.

The competition is open to makers of wearable art jewellery who:
  • have completed their academic/professional training,
  • have been out of school for one year or more,
  • and whose submitted work must have been unsupervised; work from BFA or MFA shows may not be submitted.
Beginning with this year’s award, artists who have had a solo exhibit in a gallery or museum may also apply.

The winner will be announced at SOFA New York (International Exposition of Sculpture Objects and Functional Art), April 2012, where the artist’s work will be exhibited at one of the AJF member galleries. The artist’s work will also be featured in an AJF ad.
