Since 1998, the ISSP has supported the Junge Schmuckkunst project (Art Jewelry by Young Talents), awarding jewelry artists with an independent and innovative approach. Each year, one winner is awarded a prize and the jewelry piece is donated to Schmuckmuseum Pforzheim. The museum’s collection has since expanded almost annually to include contemporary jewelry.
While in recent years ISSP members have had the opportunity to serve as jurors at the annual meeting, it was not possible in 2020 due to Covid-19 conditions, so Même was awarded by the board of directors. The Artist’s Talk offered by ISSP was also postponed in 2020, but will be reinstated in the near future.
