RICHES OF AFRICA (article first published : 1999-09-23)

AngloGold is seeking gold jewellery designs that are bold, exciting and adventurous from those entering its second Riches of Africa. The competition, established last year to provide a showcase for South African design talent, also aims to enhance the technical skills of craftsmen and to stimulate growth in the local gold jewellery industry.

Whereas participants worked in 18 carat gold in the first competition, entrants for Riches of Africa 2000 will be using 22/24 carat gold, provided by AngloGold. There are two categories: students/apprentices and professionals. All entrants are required to submit two designs before October 29. The preliminary judging takes place on November 2 when six to ten designers will be chosen from each category. Prior to submitting their manufactured pieces for final judging in April 2000, these winners will be invited to attend an AngloGold-sponsored symposium on working with 22/24 carat gold. At this session judges will select an overall winner in each category.

In the professional category, the successful candidate will earn an all-expenses-paid trip to the prestigious VicenzaOro 2 Fair and World Gold Council Technical Symposium in Italy. The person placed first in the student/apprentice category will win a fully-sponsored overseas trip to attend an education programme which will focus on jewellery design and/or manufacture. The manufactured works of all the winners will be exhibited in major cities around South Africa and abroad.

More details and entry forms from Shelagh Blackman on (011) 637-6379 or fax (011) 637-6399/6400.
