Call for Artists: 2016 Earring Show!

Presented by the Craft Council of BC and the Vancouver Metal Arts Association

The Earring Show is back! Now in its third year, the Earring Show is an exciting exhibit and sales opportunity for contemporary art jewelers.

This year The Earring Show will be held as a one night only fundraiser on Saturday, May 7th, to raise funds for CCBC’s and VMAA’s education programs. We are inviting both production jewelry artists and art jewelers from the Pacific Northwest to come together to showcase diverse examples of earrings handcrafted in every shape, size, material and concept.

There will also be a competition where our panel of celebrity judges (to be revealed later) select the best examples of contemporary earrings to win first, second or third prize in each category of production earrings or one-of-a-kind earrings.

The Production Jewelry Category is for your bread and butter pieces – earrings that are easy to wear and that can move seamlessly from day to night.

The One-Of-A-Kind Category is for earrings that take a little longer to create and use materials in new or different ways that are not easily replicated. OOAK pieces are a little more adventurous in design and ask a little more of their wearer- they are statement pieces!

We want both for the Earring Show!  We know that many jewelers work in both categories and shine brilliantly in each so show us your savvy production designs and your outrageous one-of-a-kind pieces. We want a little bit of something for everyone!

Deadline to apply is: 11:59pm on Sunday, April 3rd, 2016

A $10 non-refundable application fee is payable upon entering – YOU WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE DIRECTED TO THE PAYMENT PAGE UPON SUBMITTING THIS FORM. If you plan to enter earrings into each category you will have to pay the application fee for both. If we do not receive the application fee your earrings will not be entered into consideration.
