A special panel assesses the nominated pieces. We would welcome applications from British blacksmiths. All work should be in the UK or Northern Ireland.

Work should preferably be accessible to the general public.

Modern and traditional techniques are equally acceptable. Work in any metal and heat process is acceptable. The age of the piece should not exceed five years from completion.

Nominations incorporating as much information as possible on the submission should be sent to the Chair of the Tonypandy Committee (details below) along with a digital portfolio of past commissions.

The initial assessment will be by looking at good, high quality digital photos that show the piece overall and in detail, as the committee may be meeting online. All shortlisted

submissions will still be visited and assessed on site as usual.
