NEW for 2012!
The DIVA Design Competition is now a sponsored division of the AGTA Spectrum Awards in addition to the WJA-judged contest that has always been.
Women now have double the opportunity to be a DIVA winner! To enter either contest or both of them, designers will need to fill out separate application forms for each, and pay separate application fees.
DEADLINE: September 21st
Application is available HERE
THEMES & DETAILS:
Division 1 ~ GEM DIVA – actual jewel entries sponsored by the American Gem Trade Association as a category within their annual Spectrum Design Awards. To enter the AGTA’s competition, called GEM DIVA, you must submit a finished jewel that utilizes natural colored stones or pearls. Please refer to that contest’s application for specifics. Be sure to check off the “GEM DIVA” box on the application to become eligible for this category of the AGTA awards. (You will also be eligible for the overall Spectrum competition, too.)
One GEM DIVA winner will be awarded in each of these Spectrum Award categories:
GEM DIVA in Bridal Wear
GEM DIVA in Evening Wear
GEM DIVA in Business/Day Wear
Division 2 ~ DAZZLE DIVA ~ 2-dimensional entries To enter DAZZLE DIVA, the WJA-judged DIVA contest, fill out a WJA DIVA application form. Also required is a two-dimensional submission — either a hand-drawn rendering, a photo of an actual jewel or a CAD/CAM rendering.
The theme is gem dazzle so show us designs that showcase the beauty of natural gemstones.
One DAZZLE DIVA winner will be awarded in each of these categories:
DAZZLE DIVA Bridal Wear
