Intro
The aim of Schmuck is to promote jewellery and to show an interested audience the enormous potential which lies in crafts and trades. The works will be the outcome of formal or technical considerations and experiments, showing something new and exceptional.
Schmuck is organized since 1959 at the international trade fair. It is the eldest special jewelry show in the world. Both young talents and experienced artists working in the applied arts and technology will have the opportunity to show their work in the international competition.

Deadline for all applications will be the 6th October 2017

The competition is being organised by the Munich and Upper Bavarian Chamber of Skilled Trades and jointly sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy and the Bavarian State Ministry for Economics and Media, Energy and Technology. „Schmuck“ takes place every year as a special exhibition during the Munich International Skilled Trades Fair in March.

Projects by around 60+ participants from ca. 30 countries are exhibited in specially designed exhibition spaces over around 600 m2. At the start of the fair, we publish a high-quality catalogue to introduce the participants, together with a short biography and a description of the work. During the fair, an international jury nominates the winner of the Herbert Hofmann Prize The prize is nominal. The prize winners are mentioned again in the catalogue the following year.

The contributions should reflect the development of the artist or technician while illustrating the type of work and the topics that s/he is currently involved in. The work may not be more than two year old. The selection panel considers the applications and selects the entrants for the competition. The entrants’ contributions are then exhibited at the „Schmuck“ exhibition, which takes place during the International Skilled Trades Fair. They are appraised here by an international jury. Either individual items or a group of works can be considered. Depending on the size, no more than eight works should be presented.

A catalogue will be published for the special exhibition: Each artist will be presented with a colour photograph. We will take the photographs from your application documents. If the quality of the photographs is not sufficient, we will contact you. Please note that your photographs can be used for advertising purposes: The exhibitors agree that any photographs they send to us can be used for exhibition and press purposes.

Please note that we will not send back any application material.

The competition is publicly funded. This covers the space on the fair itself, the catalogue entry and part of the transport of the objects to and from Munich.
 
We are grafetul to the Bavarian State Ministry of Commerce and Media, Energy and Technology for the support they have lent this special show, to the Danner Foundation for their sponsorship, and to the Association of Trades Fairs as organizer of the Crafts and Trades Fair Munich.
