Contest Crystals List

Below you can find the list of the crystals based on which you have to create the composition of the contest work. It is not obligatory to use them all. You can base your work on any of the crystals from the list, and in any combinations.

Contest Regulations

  1. The topic of the contest is “I am”. The work that is submitted to this contest should correspond to the announced theme.
  2. Two kinds of works are accepted in this contest:
    — Jewelry for the neck
    — Handbags
  3. In the contest work the crystals from Swarovski new collection for season autumn/winter 2019/20 should used (please refer to “The approved crystals list for the contest”). The crystals from the new collection should be shown in all their beauty, and should set the tone and the mood of your work. They should be the center of attention!
  4. Contest crystals can be supplemented with any other components: Swarovski crystals from previous collections, seed beads, beads and any other materials.
  5. The work must be made specifically for this contest and should not have been published anywhere before.
  6. The work can be made in any technique.
  7. One participant can submit not more than 2 works to the contest, one in each category (“Jewelry for the neck” and “Handbags”). One participant can take prizes in several categories at the same time.
  1. Applications for participation in the contest should be sent to sales@greenbird.ru with a note in the subject line “Greenbird Big Contest 2019”.
  2. In the beginning of the letter the following information must be included: the name of the author, the name of the work, the website address of the author (or the name of the store, or the Instagram page, or any other resource where we can get familiar with your works). If you do not have a webpage or any other creative accounts in the social media then this field should be left blank.
  3. Then should come a brief description of the work in Russian and (obligatory) in English: what the composition symbolizes, what inspired you, the story of the creation — write anything you would like the audience to know.
  4. Upload the pictures of the contest work to any file sharing service (Yandex Disk, Dropbox, Google Disc, Mail.ru Cloud, etc.) and send a link to the pictures in the letter. Applications with pictures in the attachment are not accepted. You can send up to 3 pictures of the contest work.
  5. If your work goes to the final judgement, you agree to provide it physically for displaying in our showroom during Feb/Mar 2019.
  1. Please treat the process of photo creation responsibly. It is a very important stage as the preliminary judgement will be done by photos. The quality image will help the judges to see the beauty of your creation and the bad image on the contrary can deprive your work of the chance to win. Please do not leave the photo shoot to the last moment and may be consider inviting a professional photographer.
  2. It is better to use a neutral solid background and to make a close-up photo. We don’t recommend to submit the photos with people demonstrating your work – the model can unintentionally attract the attention and the viewers might not concentrate on your work properly. The same concerns the loud and distracting backgrounds. Please remember that your work should be the center of the viewers’ attention.
  1. Entries for the contest will be accepted until/including February 10, 2019.
  2. We will publish the gallery with the works until February 17, 2019. The works that do not reach the final will not be published on the contest webpage.
  3. We will announce the works that are chosen for the final judgement until February 24, 2019.
  4. The works that are chosen for the final judgement should be sent to us so we could exhibit them in our showroom in Moscow during March 2019 and also during the prize giving ceremony. 
  5. The prize giving ceremony will take place on March 30, 2019. Right after the ceremony we are going to ship the works back to their owners.

By submitting the application you accept all above rules and conditions. You also agree that the jury will judge the works according to their own subjective taste.

By submitting the photos of your work you agree that they can be used in our website and social networks, printed publications and catalogs, and other advertising products, and also in the website and social networks of our partners.
