Buda Contemporary Australian Silver And Metalwork Award

This exhibition presents the work of professional and student metalsmiths vying for a series of awards.

This travelling exhibition was established in 1988 to commemorate the work of colonial gold and silversmith Ernest Leviny, who lived at Buda in Castlemaine.

It is the leading event in Australia for the promotion of contemporary gold and silversmiths and jewellers – celebrating innovation, excellence in design and the traditions of the craft in a contemporary context.
