The five judges spread out among the finalists’ pieces as evenly as birds on a wire. Before long, they were working collaboratively, drawing on individual panel members’ strengths. Excitement builds as we count down the weeks until the winners of the 2013 Saul Bell Design Award competition are finally announced! Take a look at today’s post, to get a peek into the final judging event.
The Tales of the Heart Competition has proved, yet again, that the creative potential of PMC is limited only by the imagination. Sponsored by Mitsubishi Materials Corporation, the competition challenged artists to create an original work of art from PMC and gave them just one constraint—every piece must incorporate a heart.
Put your heart into this free contest, PMC artists, and you could win big. . .
The 2013 Saul Bell Design Award call-for entries campaign was kicked-off months ago, and just last week, a panel of discerning and impressive first-round judges gathered at Albuquerque’s historic Hotel Andaluz to spend an entire day scrutinizing hundreds of entries, conferring with one another, and finally selecting five finalists in each of the competitions categories! Check out The Studio today to learn more.
While Rio associates don’t qualify to enter The Saul Bell Design Award Competition, there are plenty of other competitions they can enter. One of them is “All That Glitters,” the jewelry design competition hosted by the New Mexico Jewelers Association. This year’s “All That Glitters” contest brought a level of competition that was extremely high, with astounding designs across nine categories from talented jewelers around the state. Three of our own Rio Associates brought home big prizes and you can see some of the winning pieces on The Studio today!
