The WCC “Award of Excellence for Handicrafts” aims to encourage artisans to produce handicrafts using traditional skills, patterns and themes in an innovative way, in order to ensure the continuity and sustainability of these traditions and skills. It is WCC’s flagship programme for supporting craft producers.
The WCC programme aims to provide capacity-building and training workshops to assist craft producers in the improvement of their product design and marketing, development of their markets, and protection of their intellectual property rights.
Producers of handicraft products and product lines from participating countries are invited and encouraged to submit their highest quality items for consideration. See the application form here: /sites/default/files/WCC%20Award%20of%20Excellence%202018%20APPLICATION%20FORM.DOCX
