Delighted, I agreed.
The judging panel consists of Melissa Ingram (me), Isabella Lam, Sherry Serafini, Martina Nagele and Helena Tang-Lim.
The details for the contest are:
Beads must be strung using thread or wire in the commonly known techniques; they can, however, be combined with other materials such as polymer clay, paper, leather, metal, etc. Lampworkers are also welcome.
The world — its nations and peoples are many and varied. We want to showcase this with the help of your beadwork.
There are two categories WEARABLE JEWELRY (for both men and women) and OBJECTS OF ART. There will be 5 winners in each category, as well as a Readers’ Choice Award
Deadline: December 31, 2014
Nominees will be announced in the Spring 2015 issue of Perlen Poesie. Winners will be presented at the 5th BEADERS BEST Bead Art Fair in 2015.
Oddly the prizes for the winners has not been advised at this time. I will update this blog with the details as soon as I know.
