The competition required a research inspired to any traditional art or craft form, a material, a technique, an object of use, an ornamental detail, or architectural elements, without any limit. Immaterial source of inspiration were also admitted. Candidates creative process, reasons and goals were explained through the objects and the statement submitted to the jury. The selection will be based on: the originality in the contemporary re-interpretation of the tradition; the quality of design and manufacture; the contemporary use of the materials; the conceptual and technical innovation. 

Classical art and traditional crafts constitute for every human group and every single person a legacy that cannot be ignored, or simply put aside. Contemporary research has its roots in this memory, and from it draws its nourishment. Based on the above considerations,we invite worldwide young jewellery makers to apply and submit works from which emerges a research linked to the contemporary interpretation of traditional themes of your culture, in the broadest sense of the term. / Le Arti Orafe
