The call for entries for the Grand Prizes of the City of Paris Creation is open until Tuesday, May 21, 2024. For this year's edition, the French capital has added three new prize categories: the Jewellery Accessory Prize, in collaboration with Francéclat, the Revelation Prize, to identify young talents, and the Engagement Prize to support creators whose projects address major societal challenges.

The Grand Prizes of Creation is a French national competition open to professionals in the field of fashion (ready-to-wear and fashion accessories), and design: product, space, service, culinary, graphic, etcetera.

In addition, it is open to professionals from the field of crafts from all over France such as cabinetmakers, mosaicists, ceramicists, glassmakers, jewellers, etcetera.

The Revelation Prize rewards a professional whose project is promising, creative, and shows potential for development. The prize acts as a talent revealer.

The Engagement Prize recognises a professional for their approach to creation, research, innovation, entrepreneurship, and their ability to develop and provide solutions to the challenges and uses of our time.

The Fashion Accessories Prize, in partnership with ADC (Beyond Leather), distinguishes emerging or established accessory projects (leather goods, shoes, gloves, belts, etc.).

The Jewellery Accessory Prize is open to projects in precious and costume jewellery. "By partnering with the prestigious Grand Prize of Creation, Francéclat reaffirms its commitment to creative entrepreneurs," Hervé Buffet, general delegate of Francéclat, said in the statement.

He continued: "Jewellery, a symbol-laden object with its own know-how, has a long history with the City of Paris. With this initiative, we highlight the talent and know-how of brands shaping the future of jewellery."

3 'revelation prizes', 3 'engagement prizes', one 'fashion accessory prize', and one 'jewellery accessory prize'

A grant of 18,000 euros will be awarded to the winners. Each prize is endowed with 8,000 euros by the City of Paris and supplemented by the Fonds pour les Ateliers de Paris through private partners.
