Winners of the Crafting Excellence Competition
With the introduction of industrialization and mass production, people have forgotten how to make things by hand.
For this reason, UNESCO developed the Award of Excellence for Handicrafts program to ensure that handicrafts remain relevant, valuable, and marketable in today's changing world.
Every year, UNESCO presents the Award of Excellence to distinguished craft producers who link tradition, innovation and sustainability.
UNESCO and Design 21 announced the winners of the Crafting Excellence logo competition to raise awareness for the Award of Excellence for Handicrafts.
After reviewing nearly 700 entries from 80 countries, the jury awarded $5,000 to three designers: Anna Trzebska from Poland; Marilena Florio from Italy and Nikou Alexandros from Greece.
The Most Popular vote was also given to Albert Hardiman Tejasukmana from Indonesia.
