Last Two Weeks to Enter The Centurion 2014 Emerging Designer Awards!

The September 30 deadline to enter the Sixth Annual Centurion Emerging Design Competition is fast approaching. Two lucky winners will receive a showcase and exhibit space at the Centurion Scottsdale show in Arizona, slated for February 1-5, 2014.

The competition, sponsored again this year by Stuller, is open to any jewelry designer who has never before exhibited in a U.S. fine jewelry trade show. The competition is open to all designers, regardless of experience, formal training, or background in jewelry design, but entrants must show lines or one-of-a-kind designs that are suitable for a luxury jewelry store environment and be capable of both exhibiting at a trade show and fulfilling any wholesale orders received at the show.

“The Centurion Emerging Design Competition is an excellent opportunity for up-and-coming and international designers to break into the U.S. luxury fine jewelry market, by getting their line in front of the most premiere audience of carefully selected prestige jewelers,” said Howard Hauben, president of Centurion. “For retail jewelers, the Centurion Emerging Design winners offer an opportunity to discover new talent to set your store apart,” he added. 

Sharlinn Liew, one of the winners of the 2013 competition said, “Winning was just part of the joy! The entire experience of sharing your creations and meeting people in the trade was the complete package. An unparalleled one indeed! The Centurion Award has drawn me a lot of media attention, from Singapore's main newspapers to Hong Kong's trade magazines. It has been awesome!” 

“We are honored to have the opportunity to sponsor the Emerging Designer Competition,” says Stuller executive director of marketing and public relations, Ashley Brown.  “The discovery of untapped talent is essential to the jewelry industry. And their work offers a fresh perspective on luxury design that’s both exciting and inspired.”

Deadline for entry is September 30, 2013. Entrants are required to submit up to three images of finished jewelry; no renderings or CAD drawings will be accepted. Images must be .jpg format, and each image must include a detailed description of the piece: what it is, metals, gemstones, etc.  Entries will be judged by a special judging panel, as well as by Centurion’s Board of Retail Advisors.
