Entries are now being accepted for the sixth annual Centurion Emerging Design Competition.
The competition is open to any jewelry designer who has never exhibited in a U.S. fine jewelry trade show. Two winners will receive a showcase and exhibit space at the Centurion Scottsdale show in Arizona, Feb. 1–5.
Entrants must show lines or one-of-a-kind designs that are suitable for a luxury jewelry store environment and be capable of both exhibiting at a trade show and fulfilling any wholesale orders received at the show.
“The Centurion Emerging Design Competition is an excellent opportunity for up-and-coming and international designers to break into the U.S. luxury fine jewelry market by getting their line in front of the most premiere audience of carefully selected prestige jewelers,” said Howard Hauben, president of Centurion, in a statement.
Deadline for entry is Sept. 30. Entrants are required to submit up to three images of finished jewelry; no renderings or CAD drawings will be accepted.
