The LOEWE FOUNDATION has announced the extension of the deadline for its call for entries for the LOEWE CRAFT PRIZE to 30 Nov 2016. Launched just this year, the international prize is an annual competition that recognises an outstanding work of craftsmanship that pairs an original artistic concept with a modern application of traditional method(s).
The award aims to acknowledge and support international artisans of any age or gender who demonstrate an exceptional ability to create objects of superior aesthetic value. The LOEWE FOUNDATION highlights the continued contribution of craft to the culture of our time by identifying work that reinterprets existing knowledge and making it relevant today whilst reflecting on the creator’s personal design language and capabilities.
The Prize for the winning entry is 50,000 euros. The winning work selected by the Jury, as well as the works of the finalists selected by the Experts Panel will be included in an exhibition and accompanying catalogue “LOEWE Craft Prize 2017”, on view in Madrid and subsequently travelling to other cities in Europe, Asia and the United States.
Participants have to be aged 18 and over.
