Announcing new entry fee and rules for the 2020 BeadDreams and Metal Jewelry Artistry awards

We have some exciting news for anyone who is thinking about entering the 2020 BeadDreams or Metal Jewelry Artistry Awards competitions: This year only, we are reducing the entry fee by $20 and broadening eligibility guidelines.

  • Entry fees this year will be $35 instead of $55.
  • Work produced at any time since the founding of these awards will be accepted.

Entries will be accepted beginning November, with a deadline of April 6, 2020. Prizes valued at thousands of dollars are awards each year.

“To mark our 20th year, we are putting a spotlight on 20 years of amazing artistry,” said Show Director Sara Dumford. “By accepting work produced since 2000, we want to give artists the chance to look back on their body of work and choose pieces that best reflect their technical mastery and design talents.”

Past winners aren’t eligible to enter the 2020 competition. However, artists can re-submit an entry that did not win an award.

Complete rules and guidelines are available at (for BeadDreams) and (for the Metal Jewelry Artistry Awards).

Finalists will be displayed at the Bead&Button Show from Thursday, June 4, through Sunday, June 7, 2020.
