Please use this page to upload images of your submission for the Hand & Lock Prize for Embroidery. The images of your work must be clear, unretouched, high resolution JPEGs accompanied by images that show your research and concept; we are looking to see your embroidery skills and your interpretation of the 2022 brief: The New Nature: Embellished design in harmony with the natural world

The judges will be looking for ‘Wow Factor’, embroidery talent and interpretation of the brief.

All entrants will be notified whether they are through to the next round by email. 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. Learn more about the mentorship programme here.
