Crystal 
Anniversary Competition 


For the Guild's 15th Anniversary (April 2014 – March 2015) we celebrated with a competition sponsored by SWAROVSKI. Fifteen years is represented by crystal so who better to ask to sponsor our competition than Swarovski? 

They donated some fantastic prizes including a fabulous Swarovski Crystal Trophy for the overall winner. We had a wonderful response to the competition from members and non-members of the Guild.All entries were judged anonymously by a panel of three judges, who all commented that it was a very difficult competition to judge due to the high standard of entries. Given the high standard it was decided to also award two extra commended certificates in addition to the prizes. Below you will find images of the winners and all of the finalists.
