Uploading your Prize submission

Closes midnight (GMT) 30th June 2017

Welcome to the Prize Upload portal. Please use this page to upload images of your submission for the Hand & Lock Prize for Embroidery 2017. Your images need to be clear, unretouched, high resolution JPEGs that show your research, embroidery skills and overall concept. This year’s brief was about ‘Celebration’ echoing the fact that in 2017 Hand & Lock has reached it’s 250th anniversary;

the judges will be looking for ‘Wow Factor’, embroidery talent and interpretation of the brief. All entrants will be notified by email if they have made it to the second round or not  – please be sure to use an email address you can be reached at over the coming months. Given the volume of entries we receive the judges will not be able to offer specific feedback on any work that

does not make it to the next stage. If you are one of our finalists you will be partnered with an expert mentor for the next phase of the competition. Finally, if you have any issues using this uploader please email prize@handembroidery.com

Good Luck!
