Are you the worlds next sensation? A talented jewelry design'preneur
that is going to take our industry by storm?
This is the only competition evaluating both
your designs and business plan
and offers you the opportunity to win a HUGE industry-wide prize package
Described as a game changer, the Future of Design Business competition seeks to discover, promote and catapult the next great jewelry designer into the market.
Applications begin NOW and the winner will be selected during a “Shark Tank”-like live presentation at MJSA Expo New York in NYC on March 12, 2013.
Submissions include our business plan-like application, marketing materials and visuals of your jewelry line. The application includes an in-depth questionnaire that teaches you about strategy and marketing planning along the way -- and gives you plenty of time to compose your answers.
The deadline is January 21st -- and you will need several days to complete your application, say last year's finalists.
Applicants will be judged on their business concept, market feasibility, saleability and aesthetic impact. The winner will be the "total package" destined for greatness.
This is an unprecedented competition with a vast level of industry participation, unique judging process and a dream prize package.
Do you have what it takes?
