This year has shown that more and more artists are becoming aware of the competition, and the number of entries for their competition is growing. The competition was attended by artists from different backgrounds, works of both young debutors and recognized artists, says Laima Kėrienė, the chairman of the contest, Professor of the Vilnius Academy of Arts, Artist-Jeweler.

The theme of this year's contest was social, and it was aimed at reflecting the topicalities in the world. 72 jewelers from 14 countries took part in the international jewelery contest "Random Rapid Heartbeats". Jewellers from Lithuania, Poland, Iran, Russia, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, China, South Korea, Taiwan, USA and other countries competed for the name of the winners.

According to the chairman of the competition commission, thanks to the annual jewelery art competitions published by Amber Trip, the world is becoming more and more widely known about Lithuania, especially among professional jewelers, curators and galleries.

Amber Trip's international jewelery art contests are an important event for Lithuanian artists as well - an opportunity for Lithuanian artists to break away from on-demand creations, where jewelery visions are brought to the customers and often lead to creative decisions. The art competition frees thinking and rises to a higher level. and is available in virtual space. Creating an opportunity to present authors, creators to performers and assessors, and exhibition organizers around the world, says Prof. L. Kėrienė.
