UncommonGoods, a Brooklyn-based online retailer, is hosting a Jewelry Design Challenge from now until July 12 and they would love to see the work of Parsons students. Last year’s Jewelry Design Challenge was a huge success and they are expecting an even bigger turnout this year!
This opportunity is for any jewelry designer to submit work from their portfolio. The winning designer will win $500 and a vendor contract with UncommonGoods, getting their designs in front of thousands of customers. All finalists will have the opportunity to submit their entire portfolio to UncommonGoods buyers, get their work critiqued by a panel of judges that will include Aaron Ruff of Digby & Iona and experience some serious online exposure.
Artists can learn more on our design page and submit their designs through their online form: http://www.uncommongoods.com/designs/jewelry
Since 1999, UncommonGoods has worked with independent artists and designers to promote their work via our catalog and website, and they place a high value on supporting emerging artists and designers in a variety of ways. This year, they’re expanding their business to support local artists with development events, provide content on their blog to help them grow their craft and business and give opportunities to more fine artists through our challenges.
