The Association for Contemporary Jewellery

is devoted to the promotion, representation, understanding and development of contemporary jewellery in the United Kingdom and abroad.

Founded as a membership association in 1997 and registered as a Limited Company in 2006, it recognises a need to foster discussion, debate and critical review and interaction amongst its members. To this end we organise conferences, lectures, seminars, workshops and an annual general meeting for our members. Our regular newsletter, findings, features reviews, information, comment, book offers and discounts and is of benefit to both our members and the wider public. We also produce a monthly e-bulletin featuring news and opportunities.

We welcome as members practising jewellers, associated designers and crafts people, educators, students, gallery owners and retailers, museum curators, critics and collectors - indeed, anyone with an interest in contemporary jewellery.

We welcome entries from all parts of the UK and ROI for projects or initiatives that combine some or all of the elements that make an epic arts or crafts programme. We want to reward groups that have done great work since Jan 2010, but if your project or initiative is ongoing you can still enter. It helps if you can show what you've achieved so far and what is planned for the future. There will be a winner and runner-up from each of the nations: England, Ireland (including the Republic of Ireland), Scotland and Wales.

The group are from all corners of the country with one resounding passion - quality, craftsmanship and design in Jewellery.
