2008 JAA Australian Jewellery Awards
Honouring the best emerging as well as established jewellers in Australia and New Zealand, the Awards recognise individuals with the highest levels of artistry, creativity and excellence in quality and style and showcases them for the world to see.
Now in its 21st year, the competition has given many jewellers a platform to start or enhance their career in the industry. In a world where there are hundreds of designs created each year, the JAA Awards competition was introduced out of the desire to showcase and honour the best designers and well designed pieces. The award-winning pieces are highlighted to the international public via the Awards Presentation Event and are promoted throughout the industry across the world.
The competition can provide extensive publicity and marketing opportunities to jewellers. It is considered as a quality and high-return alternative to any advertising you might be running.
The mission of the JAA Australasian Jewellery Awards is to provide a platform for jewellers and innovators from all design fields with different experience levels, diverse disciplines and market focus to compete on, while providing them a global audience to showcase their success and talents.
