VDW - Jewerly Selection 2021

VDW - Jewerly Selection 2021

The VDW Jewelry Selection 2021 has a long tradition and over the years has spread globally, targeting contemporary jewellery developers by stimulating creation on a specific theme. Participants come from literally all over the world and will compete in 2021 on the theme "Dazzle me!" An exhortation, with an exclamation mark, to create a piece of jewellery that captures attention and truly surprises those who look at it "straight in the eye". A challenge to play with light, colours, reflections and so much more, who knows?

The prize-winners will be exhibiting at the Venice Design Week from 9 to 17 October and among the prizes there is the possibility of exhibiting in prestigious galleries that have a section dedicated to contemporary jewellery, such as OONA gallery in Berlin, OHMYBLUE in Venice, Creativity oggetti in Turin, 15metriquadri in Udine. In addition, a communication plan dedicated to promoting the work of individual designers will be implemented through the Venice Design Week portal and media partners, which will highlight new points of view and capture the public's attention by directing it towards individual designers.

The commission is composed by Maria Rosa Franzin - Associazione Gioiello Contemporaneo AGC, Anna Schetelich - OONA Galerie Berlin, Elena Rizzi - OHMYBLUE gallery Venice, Roberto Zanon architect and Professor of Design at the Academy of Fine Arts, Valeria Accornero - journalist and blogger, Marianna Serandrei - owner of Ca' Pisani Design Hotel.
