Here at Nude Contemporary Jewellery, the time has come again to launch our annual Graduates in the Spotlight competition. One lucky graduate will get the chance to win themselves a 'spotlight' in our Mayfair boutique and online shop for a period of three months.

We understand how difficult it can be starting out and believe it is incredibly important to give our nations aspiring jewellery designers and makers a 'leg up' on their career ladder.

We are offering graduates the opportunity to showcase their collections in an established independent retailer, allowing them the chance to sell their work as well as enabling them to use it as a valuable sounding board for the future.  


How it works...


We need to receive all submissions by the 10th April 2015. We will review all entries and carefully select our top ten. Then a panel of judges will narrow it down to three finalists. The finalists selected will be displayed in a poll on our blog where the public will vote to decide who becomes our 'Graduate in the Spotlight.'


If invited then we will need to see the colection by the 16th April 2015 - entires can be delivered by hand or post.


The closing date for the poll will end on the 3rd of May 2015 and after that date we will announce the winner.
We will display the winners collection for three months starting from June 1
st 2015. 

For the first month the collection will be displayed in a prime position in our window, then in an interior display cabinet for the remaining two months.
