Make Your Mark 2D Design award at the Goldsmiths' Craft and Design Council competition 2023/24

We are delighted to be partnering again with The Goldsmiths' Craft and Design Council for the 2023/24 Competition with our Make Your Mark design challenge.

This year, on the theme of ‘City Spirit’, entrants are invited to design jewellery, smallwork or silverware. Broad and engaging interpretations of this are encouraged and welcomed, such as folklore, fashion, festivals, communities, culture, diversity, food, history and architecture to name but a few areas of interest. Designers can choose any city (globally) but must embrace their concept visually through their design presentation.

Also important, designs must incorporate a display, or bespoke placement of the London Assay Office hallmark that is complimentary to the design and thoughtfully positioned. This is an opportunity to choose the placement of the hallmark components, and to consider the hallmark in harmony with your design.
