The Halstead Grant is calling for entries to its annual competition for emerging jewelry artists working in silver. The grand prize winner receives a $7,500 cash grant as well as $1,000 in jewelry supplies, a feedback report from the judging committee, a trip to Halstead headquarters in Arizona, and recognition in the field. The top 10 finalists are all recognized with signature trophies, smaller cash prizes and individual feedback reports. The deadline is August 1 every year. To be eligible, applicants must be US citizens who started their businesses within the last three years. Jewelry artists should have a jewelry collection with significant use of silver ready to present to the market. The grant experience is a business development exercise to help jewelry start-ups establish clear goals for the early years of their studios.
