Australian Design Centre in partnership with JMGA-NSW are calling for entries to Profile 2021, the 7th JMGA-NSW biennial curated award exhibition.

Profile was originally scheduled to be presented at ADC in October and November 2021 but has been postponed to June 2022 due to the extended lockdown in New South Wales and the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions.

Profile is a significant curated award exhibition of contemporary jewellery, objects and metalwork by members of Jewellers and Metalsmiths Group of Australia NSW (JMGA-NSW). Awards are on offer for both early career and established artists and we are seeking a diverse cross-section of work from national and international contemporary makers.

All participants must be current members of JMGA-NSW. Visit JMGA-NSW to join.
