2023 Prizes

These awards are given by Hand & Lock and chosen by a specialist panel of independent expert judges. There are three winners in each of the four categories, 12 Hand & Lock Prize winners in total. Each year the judging panel reviews the first stage submissions and selects the finalists. A few months pass where these selected finalists can finesse their entry with the help of an industry mentor. At the Prize exhibition, live judging and Prize-giving the judges see the finished submissions and begin their final assessment. Considering both the final work and the entrant’s supporting materials, they score according to the entrants interpretation of the brief, their technical skill, their overall vision and wow factor.

By Hand & Lock X Creative Collaboration

We are thrilled to offer a new creative collaborative opportunity to work with the By Hand & Lock design team. This is a unique opportunity for one of the 2023 finalists to collaborate with Hand & Lock to produce an exclusive embroidery kit. The embroidery kit will be promoted through the Hand & Lock website, and all of our social channels, plus it will be available in the Hand & Lock shop, and pop up shop for the Prize and Embroidered Arts events. The winner will be selected from the 2023 group of finalists and chosen by the Hand and Lock design team and will also receive a one off design fee to work collaboratively throughout 2024 to produce the embroidery kit design.
