The Loewe Foundation has now opened submissions to the 2020 LOEWE FOUNDATION Craft Prize. Celebrating excellence, artistic merit and originality in modern craftsmanship, CHART encourages all budding design talents to submit their work. Submissions for the Craft Prize 2020 will be accepted until 30 October 2019.
The LOEWE FOUNDATION Craft Prize was launched in 2016, seeking to acknowledge and support international artisans who demonstrate an exceptional ability to create objects of high aesthetic quality, and provides new ground and support for the winner, who will receive 50,000 Euros. Potential candidates for this year’s edition are invited to study the guidelines and submit work at loewecraftprize.com.
LOEWE FOUNDATION Craft Prize 2020 will take place in Paris at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs. A shortlist of works for the 2020 prize will be chosen by an expert panel composed of artists, artisans, essayists, curators and designers. From these works the prize’s jury, consisting of prominent art professionals—among last year’s prize winner Genta Ishizuka and Creative Director of LOEWE Jonathan Anderson—will select the winning piece. The winner of the LOEWE FOUNDATION Craft Prize 2020 will be announced in Paris in Spring 2020.
The 2019 edition of the prize received over 2,500 submissions from 100 countries across the globe. For this year’s edition, potential candidates are invited to study the guidelines for the Craft Prize and submit work at loewecraftprize.com.
