National Contemporary Jewellery Award 2024

The Griffith Regional Art Gallery is proud to be the custodian of the National Contemporary Jewellery Collection (NCJC), the only collection of its kind in regional NSW. The National Contemporary Jewellery Award (NCJA) was started by the Griffith Regional Art Gallery in 1992 to support the development of the collection and to promote contemporary jewellery practice.

The NCJA is a biennial award that brings together contemporary applied arts, visual arts and design practice. Attracting Australia’s leading contemporary object artists and expanding the boundaries of the art of human adornment, the NCJA showcases unique and innovative creations of some of the country’s finest contemporary jewellery practitioners.
