We are pleased to announce "glassdressing", the Seventh edition of the
International Design Contest Trieste Contemporanea which, as of this year,
is under the patronage of CEI (Central European Initiative).

Together with the CEI Venice Forum, organised on occasion of the Arts
Biennale of Venice with the objective of assessing the state of culture in
the countries of Central Eastern Europe, the design contest is one of the
most significant events among those organised by the Trieste Contemporanea
Committee to promote reciprocal understanding and exchange among the
countries of this region of Europe by way of a wide range of cultural
activities in the field of visual arts, music and cinema.
This biennial appointment aims at spreading the most original design
expressions of the Central-Eastern European countries and will be dedicated
this year to the creation of glass jewels.
The 2006 objective being that of stimulating a creative research capable of
proposing new aesthetic and formal contemporary pathways in the glassware
industry, the candidates are asked to submit a project for any type of
glass jewelry which complies with the following criteria: the object will
have to be conceived as an ornament for the body and thus, after its
creation, will have to be wearable; glass should be the predominant
material making up the object.

We would be very grateful if you could kindly help us reach the widest
possible number of designers by circulating the information about the

glassdressing - Seventh International Design Contest Trieste Contemporanea

Deadline: MAY 31st, 2006.
The designers of 21 countries from Central Eastern Europe (Albania,
Austria, Belarus, Bosnia Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic,
Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova,
Poland, Romania, Serbia and Montenegro, Slovak Republic, Slovenia and
Ukraine) are called to apply and submit a project for a GLASS JEWEL.
Enrollment to the contest is free of charge and the announcement is

The best projects will be awarded a first and a CEI prize (both of 3000
EURO) and the youngest designer will win the BEBA prize (1000 EURO). See in
the contest's regulations the list of the other prizes and the planned
workshop in Venice. All the selected projects will be realized in Murano
