Cinema in India, or ‘Bollywood’ as it is popularly known, is one of the pervading symbols of Indian life and culture. Perhaps no one institution has so much influence on how we think, dress and act.

Isn't it only time we paid an ode to this influential part of our lives through our jewellery? As a multitude of talented designers converge under the realms of this contest, Indian cinema will come alive through exquisitely designed pieces of jewellery. There will be drama, romance, history, song and dance. Gemstones, diamonds and precious metals will all come together to sing a rhapsody that's a fitting tribute to Indian cinema.

The Artisan Jewellery Design Awards 2014 celebrates the magic of Indian Cinema through 4 iconic eras – Monochromatic Magic (black and white era), Golden Glory (golden era), Colorama (masala films era) & The Avant Garde (global era).

This is an opportunity for you to create pieces of jewellery that don't just represent but also celebrate these momentous eras in Indian Cinema.

So, go ahead and let your creative instincts take over and your imagination run wild. Design jewellery that could win you accolades and put you on the road to stardom. Remember August 15, 2014 is the last date to submit your entries.
