The Wallpaper* / Ketel One Modern Craft Project

Just a quick post about The Modern Craft Project, which is being run by Ketel One Vodka in association with Wallpaper* magazine.

The Modern Craft Project is a quest to discover, celebrate and support today’s most talented and entrepreneurial modern craftspeople. The closing date for entries is Saturday 15th December so there are just three days left to get involved and submit a portfolio.

One UK craftsperson will be selected to win the Ketel One Legacy £30,000 prize fund, which will aid their pursuit of excellence; which could be anything from purchasing new equipment, taking on an apprentice, or renting work space. The successful modern craftsperson selected to become the Ketel One Legacy recipient will have demonstrated mastery of a traditional skill, expertly applied in a modern context and show an outstanding passion and dedication for excelling in their nominated craft.

Applicants should follow the following criteria:
1. Reinterpret traditional skills and values in a modern way
2. Harness innovative technologies alongside traditional materials or skills
3. Possess an ability as a progressive thinker with and entrepreneurial spirit
4. Not a large scale manufacturer
Entrants need not undertake their modern-craft on a full-time or professional basis.
Deadline for submission is December 15th.

This is an amazing opportunity, not only to win a substantial amount of money to further your craft, but also to gain high profile exposure in Wallpaper* magazine.
