Intro
The ZLR JEWELLERY AWARDS 2019 aim to encourage jewellery artists to keep on striving for excellence! With the award, ZLR intends to set a paradigm for personal responsibility and individual initiative, as well as question the value of prestige and distinctions in the international jewellery community.
The awards (three individual artist residencies in Greece) may boost the jewellers' imagination and enrich their understanding of the meaning and uses of jewellery.
Greece's 5.000 years old fascinating jewellery tradition can become an indispensable source of inspiration for every jewelry artist who sees beyond the obvious.

12th of March, the last day of application.
16th of March, the day of the award announcement.
