We are proud to sponsor the Technological Innovation Award in the Goldsmiths' Craft and Design Council Competition. A silver award was presented at the ceremony on 17 May 2021 to Gearry Suen.
The brief asked designers to enter 3D pieces that demonstrated technological innovation in creative design: "This special award celebrates the use and contribution that technology is now playing/making in our profession. The winner of this exciting prize will have demonstrated innovative use of technology through the production of 3D jewellery, smallwork or silverware. The winner will receive a cash prize and also be entitled to free registration and a hallmarking punch at the London Assay Office."
