Intro
The award ceremony of the 30th International Jewellery Competition Touch is behind us. On Saturday evening, the culmination of the Legnica SILVER Festival the winners were announced. The event attracted artists and lovers of artistic jewelry from all over the world, making the eyes of the European goldsmith community turn to Legnica.
The first prize, the Grand Prix of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, was awarded to Andrzej Szadkowski, a recognized Polish goldsmith, whose work with the meaningful title Painful Touch of Time refers to the war in Ukraine. The second prize went to Rudolf M. Sheffold from Germany, whose brooch entitled Springtime impressed the jury with its precision and perfect design.
The third award - the Prize of the President of the City of Legnica - went to Agnieszka Działo-Jabłońska for the brooch Touch-painted love colours. The Gallery of Art Award went to Peter Machata from Slovakia for his work made of plexiglass, while the Silver Spur - the Organizers' special award for creative courage and uncompromising attitude, innovation, or sense of humour, went to Zhipeng Wang, who presented in Legnica a set of rings made of tea and coffee.

The honoured artists also received a very special award, referring to the tradition of the region - a silver granulate funded by KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. - Polish Copper Mining Company.
In addition to prizes awarded by the jury, the artists were also honoured with extra-statutory prizes from sponsors and partners of the Festival: YES Gallery from Poznań, MYDAYBYDAY Gallery from Rome, Inhorgenta International Fair from Munich, International Amber Association from Gdańsk, Polish Association of Goldsmiths, Lost in Jewellery magazine and companies: Hopea and "Usługi Odlewnicze" (Foundry Services).

Let’s remind the Jury of the 30th International Jewellery Competition Touch: Sofia Björkman, Miroslav Cogan, Sławomir Fijałkowski, Nastya Ivlieva and Małgorzata Kalińska evaluated 426 works by 240 artists from 30 countries, qualifying works by 51 artists from 13 countries for the post-competition exhibition.
The qualified works will be presented at the exhibition in the Gallery of Art in Legnica during this year's edition of the Legnica Jewellery Festival SILVER from May 4 to June 30, 2022. Detailed program of the Festival on the website silver.legnica.eu.
