NICHE magazine is now accepting applications for the 2014 NICHE Awards, a prestigious juried competition recognizing excellence in fine craft design. Professional and student artists may apply online.
Contest categories include ceramics, fiber, glass, metal, wood and jewelry arts.  Recently added new categories seek original artist-made holiday ornaments and decorations; objects for the kitchen and for dining; and jewelry made from alternative materials.
