The New Zealand Lace Society runs a number of competitions.

The Jane Griffiths Trophy


the_jane_griffiths_trophy_for_the_novice_lacemaker.gifThis beautiful trophy is for novice lace makers.  A novice lace maker is one who has been making lace for less than 3 years. 

This trophy donated by the family of Jane Griffiths and constructed using some of her bobbins would grace any mantle and serve as an inspiration to great works.  As well as having the trophy on your mantle for a year if you are the lucky recipient you also recieve an engraved bone bobbin to keep spangled with beads from Janes collection.

The rules were changed in 2007 to encourage novice lacemakers to try and win the trophy. The conditions of entry now are that you be a novice lace maker but you may enter any piece of lace completed in the last year.

This allows a longer time to work on a piece and does not impose a theme to be followed which when you are just starting out can put you off.

The Olive Walklin Trophy

For the best  use of Colour in Lace

This trophy is in memory of Olive Walklin and the recipient is selected every year from all the competition entries.
