The Friends of Carlotta Gallery is celebrating its 25th birthday this year. We haven't had so much reason to celebrate, be happy and say thank you in 25 years. To mark the occasion, we are once again organizing the coveted Friends of Carlotta Jewelry and Fellowship Award as part of a thematic exhibition.
For the Friends of Carlotta Jewellery and Fellowship Award 2020, we are looking for a piece of jewellery that is nothing less than: 
  • The ultimate flash of inspiration.
  • A stunning invention.
  • Something totally unprecedented.
  • A great aha experience.
  • A milestone in contemporary jewellery.

One material makes us despair. A problem has been fermenting for far too long. The brilliant idea does not want to and will not take shape. Sleeplessly one searches for the inspiration, the grandiose revelation. Weight loss, weight gain, insomnia, signs of insanity - where is the idea that outshines everything that has gone before? And suddenly redemption. Eureka! I got it. Just like Archimedes is said to have called out after he realized the principle of water displacement in the bathtub.  

An independent jury will award the best work with the FoC Jewellery and Fellowship Award Prize of Fr. 2000.-- and at least one to three other works will be honoured with an award. 

I am looking forward to all the best things since sliced bread - to your ultimate burners and of course the exciting stories about them. Let us write jewellery history.

The Friends of Carlotta audience award:

The winner will receive a fruit basket as well as a piggy bank that appreciates being fed by exhibition visitors. The winner will be announced at the gallery and on our homepage at the end of the exhibition.

Evaluation criteria: 
  • The originality of the work in relation to the subject.
  • Innovation.
  • Design and choice of materials.
  • Craftsmanship.
The jury reserves the right to exclude entries that do not meet the quality requirements or are off-topic. Images, texts and jewellery that do not meet the call deadline cannot be presented in time and cannot be judged. 
All pieces of jewellery that are placed at our disposal are handled with great care and respect. However, Bruna reserves the right to exclude jewellery that is too fragile to withstand an exhibition.
