Calling For Entries! The 2019 Centurion Emerging Designer Competition Is Now Open July 03, 2018 (0 comments)


Merrick, NY—Announcing the 11th anniversary edition of the Centurion Annual Emerging Designers Competition!

The event, sponsored by Stuller, is officially open and calling for entries. Deadline to enter is September 17, 2018. 

The competition is open to all designers, regardless of experience, formal training or background in jewelry design, as long as they meet the following criteria: 1) they have never before exhibited in a U.S. fine jewelry trade show; 2) they have the ability to exhibit at a trade fair; and 3) they have the ability to supply high-end retailers should they want to purchase the line. Designers who have not won the competition previously are eligible to enter again.

Stuller has been a longtime staunch supporter of the Centurion Emerging Designers Competition.

Three lucky winners--to be voted on by a special panel of judges and Centurion's Retail Board of Advisors--will receive complimentary exhibit space and a tower showcase at Centurion Scottsdale 2018, to be held in Scottsdale, Arizona, from January 27-29, 2019. (Dates do not include arrival and departure).

Winners will have the opportunity to exhibit their line throughout the Show, participate in all Show events and activities, and continue to the Tucson gem shows afterward if they wish.

Remember, the entry deadline is September 17, 2018!!
