The Stained Glass Association of America’s Design Competitions at the Syracuse 2011 Annual Summer Conference represents a new and novel approach to competitions designed to highlight stained, decorative, and architectural art glass. These competitions — essentially, there are two of them, as both theme categories can be entered and both will be judged separately — will be judged based on 11″ x 22″ proposed designs on the theme of either Creation (religious) or Harmony (residential).
This is a great opportunity to show off some designs on these themes and also maybe win a prize for your efforts. The entry fee is only $35, and there will be cash prizes for first, second, and third place. There will also be product prizes, including gift certificates from Artisan Glass Works, S.A. Bendheim, Blenko Glass Company, Denver Glass Machinery, DHD Metals, Kokomo Opalescent Glass Company, Mayco Industries, Reusché & Co., and Uroboros Studios.
Also, winning entries will be published in The Stained Glass Quarterly and on the SGAA websites. For more information, see Syracuse 2011 Design Competition on http://stainedglass.org/?page_id=417.
