Contemporary Wearables Biennial Jewellery Award and Exhibition recognises and promotes innovation in design and use of materials in the creation of contemporary jewellery and adornment. Inaugurated in 1989, the award continues to attract entries from prominent and emerging artists in Australia and New Zealand. 

The award exhibition brings together a diverse range of contemporary works created by jewellers, artisans and makers that are contemporary both in design and social commentary.

This year’s award exhibition was juried by Dr Sabine Pagan, contemporary jeweller and interdisciplinary practitioner and Mr Kevin Murray, independent writer, curator and managing editor for Garland Magazine.
