Apply for the AJF Young Artist Award, open to contemporary jewelry artists aged 35 and under. Held every two years, it acknowledges promise, innovation, and individuality, and advances the careers of rising artists. This international prize awards US$7,500 to the winner, as well as an exhibition during Schmuck, in March 2024, for the winner and four finalists, who will each receive $1,000.

The award has advanced their careers by virtue of increased exposure, networking connections, and exhibition opportunities.
