London Runway Jewellery Design Competition

We’re putting together a competition for jewellery designers – whether you’re an established designer, a student of design, or just a hobbyist. Even if you’ve never designed anything
before, we’d love you to give it a try!

What We Want

We’re looking for a piece of jewellery that exemplifies the London Runway ethos. We love things that are:

  • sustainable
  • diverse
  • equal

Interpret that as you will!

How It Works

The competition will span over the course of two issues. First we’ll take entries (that’s starting right now with the 27th January). We’ll close the entries on the 26th February to give us time to put together a shortlist for a public vote, and we’ll have the results for the issue on the 27th March!

First STEP: submit Your Design

You could include our logo, make it look like a magazine, or go a more abstract route. It’s totally up to you!

Likewise, we don’t mind if it’s a pair of earrings, a necklace, a bracelet, a ring, a hair clip, a tiara… you name it! So long as it would be classed as a piece of jewellery, we’d like to see it.

At this stage it only needs to be a design, which you can create on paper or with the software of your choice. We will accept images of finished pieces of jewellery as well if you want to make your design come to life.

There’s no need to make your jewellery a real item… unless you want to! If you’re selected for the final voting round, we’ll be adding images of your design to our social media pages so that people can vote by ‘liking’ them.

This will be your chance to lobby support from friends, family, and followers, and win over your competition!


  • Must be a design for a piece of jewellery only – clothing or other types of accessories will not be accepted
  • Must be your own work and design (no copyrighted works or images)
  • Must source anything used as an element (font, illustration, etc)
  • Must include description and explanation of design along with submission
  • Must be sent through our submission form below
  • Format should be .jpg or .png, with files no larger than 2000px on the longest side

Keep in Mind:

  • Read through the full guidelines and make sure to fulfill all the requirements.
  • If you have a pre-existing design you think would work, please add a few tweaks to make something original for this competition
  • Don’t hold back, and design to impress!
  • Stay true to your own artistic flair and have fun!
  • You are allowed to only enter the competition once. Multiple entries will be disregarded once they are either accepted through to the next round or rejected.

The Prizes… and more!

The winner will see their design plus an interview with themselves printed in our March issue. We’ll be sharing it on all our social media pages! If you have your own range of jewellery or have been able to make your design come to life, we’ll offer you a free photoshoot with our in-house team that you can use to promote and sell the design.

The winner will receive:

  • A FREE print copy of the issue featuring their winning design and interview
  • A London Runway Popsocket and logo stickers

So… what are you waiting for?!

Submit your designs now for this amazing opportunity! We will be personally looking at everybody’s submissions, so don’t be shy and show us what you’ve got!
