The Japan Jewellery Design Competition is a biennial event, that has been held since 1965. It is the biggest and the most historic Jewellery Design Competition in Japan. It has been seeking epoch-making jewellery and asking what is the value of jewellery that will lead to nextgeneration. We have held this event internationally several times in the past, and those were good opportunities to discover and assess Japanese jewellery in the global stage. Through out these activities, this competition has been highly acclaimed by both the cultural and the design fields domestically and internationally. We are pleased to announce that it is again open for applicants from all over the world this year. We are aiming at bringing the jewellery to even higher level by searching for innovative jewellery design together, and introduce them to the world.

Japan Jewellery Designers Designers Association (JJDA) is always furthering the development of the biennial jewellery design competitions that have been held since their establishment in 1964 to promote even higher standards of jewellery design. JJDA views jewellery as a form of art design, and value much more than its material value. Based on this concept, JJDA widely calls for entries for finished work and also design drawings. JJDA’s final goal is to establish a firm position within the jewellery world and to cultivate human resources for the next generation by improving standards of Japanese jewellery design by awarding prizewinners.

Open call for established and emerging artists and designers, to present a work of experimental jewellery, still unreleased.

Theme of the competition:
Affinamento ed evoluzione

For 10 years, the main focus of the competition has been inspired by the chemical phenomenon of fermentation as the metaphor underlining the evolutionary aspect of contemporary experimental jewellery, which represents a crossroads between individual research paths and international collective atmospheres. A piece of jewellery is the result of a pure fermenting process.

The general context of the project Gioielli in Fermento, as it to say about the term fermentation, ideally refers to a suitably “transformed” result, an art jewellery piece, which constitutes the outcome of the research itself, linked to phases of preparation, experimentation, quality determination.
Apart from the chemical phenomenon, which has a precise role in the world of wine, over the years we have tried to investigate this concept more and more by putting it in relation with the world of contemporary body ornaments.

At the turn of the X Edition, the theme, from fermentation, leads to Aging and Evolution with the purpose of communicating something even more accomplished and beyond the inherent state of maturation.

The winning work will express a singular creative energy, that original individuality of research studio jewellery that represents the idea of contemporary fermento (restlessness, excitement, trepidation, upheaval …) through the maturity of the path, experienced by its author.

Deadline: 23.2.2020
