Finalists selected for JNA Jewellery Design Competition 2018/19

15 March 2019

The JNA Jewellery Design Competition 2018/19 has shortlisted 15 finalists on January 31. They will vie for the grand prize that includes US$2,000.




 

Organised by JNA of UBM Asia and sponsored by Crossfor Co Ltd, Platinum Guild International (PGI) and the Tahitian Pearl Association Hong Kong (TPAHK), the JNA Jewellery Design Competition 2018/19 aims to foster creativity and innovation in jewellery design.

The judging panel, chaired by renowned jewellery designer Fei Liu, has selected 15 finalists and evaluated each entry against the criteria set by the organisers as well as the entries’ adherence to the respective themes. The judging panel also includes eminent jewellery designer Robert Tateossian; famous visual artist Bradley Theodore; and publisher and editor-in-chief of the JNA group, Christie Dang. The three category judges are Ida Wong, general manager of TPAHK; Hidetaka Dobashi, founder and CEO of Crossfor; and Suzanne Wong, senior product manager of PGI.

The 2018/19 competition attracted a total of 2,588 entries from jewellery designers and students from 39 countries and regions. There are five finalists in each category – Dancing Stone, Platinum and Tahitian Pearl, respectively. Of the 15 finalists, five are from China; three are from Taiwan; while the rest are from Bulgaria, Egypt, Iran, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, and the US.

The organisers said they were encouraged by the deluge of high-calibre submissions for the 2018/19 competition, saying this injected new concepts into the existing design framework and elevated designs of Dancing Stone, platinum and Tahitian pearl jewellery.

Winners of the JNA Jewellery Design Competition 2018/19 will be announced in June 2019.
