Here’s to remind you:


the 28th International Jewellery Competition "Silver” is underway.

Deadline for submission of competition entries: 1 April 2019

(Works must reach the Gallery within this deadline - the date on the postmark is irrelevant.)

Also, take into account, please, that works sent from abroad may get stuck at the Customs which causes delays in their arrival at the Gallery.


As usual, the Competition is the main event of Legnica SILVER Festival, which this year celebrates its 40th anniversary. This year’s theme “Silver” refers to the origin and history of the Festival.


The Entry Form is available here: ENTRY FORM

Competition Terms & Regulations are available: COMPETITION TERMS


The 28th International Jewellery Competition "SILVER" is an open contest - professional artists as well as amateurs and debutants from all corners of the world are welcome. Submitted works are expected to be jewellery in a broad sense of the word, to represent a high level of artistry and execution, to contain an original, creative concept and a clear reference to the theme of the Competition. The organizers do not set any limits as to the materials and techniques applied, however, due to this year's title - emphasizing the 40-year-old tradition of the Festival - we suggest the use of silver.


Welcome to the 28. International Jewellery Competition (this year more SILVER than ever)!




Pretext is always important.

A pretext for making a decision, for creative engagement, for revealing one’s opinion.

Proposing competition slogans / topics /reasons, every year we searched for such pretexts, hoping that they would become a source of inspiration, irritation, interference – for authors, recipients, observers.

In recent years we have reflected together the importance of rituals (2012), the social and personal justification of revolt (2013), the canon of the classic (2014), barriers and transgressions that form  boundaries (2015), the phenomenon of the city (2016), components of cultural identity ( 2017) and finally the phenomenon of illusion in art (2018).

This year we decided not to look for a pretext or an excuse. It materialized on its own (though it have been with us constantly since 1979 - for the entire 40 years of the history of Legnica silver festivals and exhibitions of design jewellery). And that's why it's still so important to us.


SILVER / Argentum


A subject that calls for a return to the sources, focus, patience and attention, perfection of execution, a reinterpretation of the term "noble metal" - in its material, chemical, historical, mercantile, cultural or symbolic value.
