Talente 15 | Schmuck Munich
Talente is an annual competition for new talent in the areas of design and technology. The focus of the competition is on work that shines through its formal and technical originality and technical perfection, and is ahead of its time. The competition is being organised by the Munich and Upper Bavarian Chamber of Skilled Trades and jointly sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy and the Bavarian State Ministry for Economics and Media, Energy and Technology. „Talente“ takes place every year as a special exhibition during the Munich International Skilled Trades Fair in March.
Projects by around 90 participants from ca. 25 countries are exhibited in specially designed exhibition spaces over around 600 m2. At the start of the fair, we publish a high-quality catalogue to introduce the participants, together with a short biography and a description of the work. During the fair, an international jury nominates the winner of the Talente-Prize. The prize is nominal. The prize winners are mentioned again in the catalogue the following year. The purpose of the „Talente“ exhibition is to promote as many people as possible. It is therefore not possible to enter more than once.
We invite new talent in the areas of design and technology to enter. In the design section, you must not be more than 33 years old in the year that the competition takes place. The maximum age in the technology section is 35. „Talente“ entrants from previous years may not enter again. Invitations are sent out to over 25 countries throughout Europe and beyond. The contributions are selected by a panel of experts. Interested parties apply online with photographic and text documentation of the work that they wish to enter with.
The contributions should reflect the development of the artist or technician while illustrating the type of work and the topics that s/he is currently involved in. The work may not be more than two year old. The selection panel considers the applications and selects the entrants for the competition. The entrants’ contributions are then exhibited at the „Talente“ exhibition, which takes place during the International Skilled Trades Fair. They are appraised here by an international jury. Artists/technicians can only exhibit the work that they applied with. Any other works, or newer ones, cannot be displayed. Either individual items or a group of works can be considered. Depending on the size, no more than eight works should be presented.
Belli, Studio for Design was nominated for the Talente-Prize of 2015 in the categorie ceramics.
