put your creativity, craftsmanship and luck at stake


This year’s Silver Festival in Legnica


has a very exciting theme:

English version

and not only exciting but absolutely up to date. The word craftmanship has become fashionable in high places, just as it did during the recession at the turn of the last century. ‘Classic’ is in the ether and ‘handmade’ is not anymore in the sphere of anthropological phenomena, it is almost everywhere cousin of the word ‘organic’.

Deadline for sending works is the 30 of March 2014.
