Grant Judging Nearly Finished

In Jewelry Business Grant, Uncategorized on July 10, 2009 at 9:15 am

We committed to an intense schedule of grant judging this year in hopes of concluding the process a little bit earlier than usual. We are on track to do so and expect to announce results in about two weeks, give or take. This will be a fresh batch of incredible new talent for all you fans of emerging designers. We will be profiling each finalist on this blog in the month of August so check back often to start planning your holiday wish list:)

Grant Judging – Getting Organized

In Jewelry Business Grant on June 22, 2009 at 1:04 pm

Wow,  it looks like a great pool of candidates in the grant competition this year! We are busy organizing application materials in the judging rooms, sending out receipt confirmations and setting up for the long weeks of judging ahead.

We spend hundreds of hours reading through submissions each year. Every judge goes through most packets at least 2-3 times during the course of the judging process. These are big packets so that is a lot of reading and note taking! Judging typically takes at least three elimination cycles to get to our finalist group. We should finish organizing today and be ready to jump into judging tomorrow.

I plan to make a special trip to Starbucks to make sure I’m ready. Mmmm, I can taste my latte now:) There is nothing more delicious than a morning full of good coffee and beautiful jewelry. Good luck everyone!

Applications are arriving!
