Today we are launching a new competition on the GoJD in collaboration with Durston Rolling Mills who have generously donated one of their disc cutting sets (RRP £195) as a prize.

The theme of this competition, inspired (albeit loosely!) by the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics, is Rings.
You can use any medium, any style and any size; single or multiple finger rings and as large & elaborate as you like!

If you have a ring that you’ve designed and made yourself simply post an image of your piece on the GoJD Forum thread, GoJD Facebook page or GoJD Community page to enter the competition. Leave a brief description if you wish and the ring with the greatest number of ‘likes’* across four social media platforms on 15 September 2012 will win the disc cutter.
The fourth social media platform is Pinterest and we will also add your entry to our 'August Rings Competition' board here >>>

To post your entry on the GoJD community pages:
- login to the GoJD website
- from the horizontal menu directly beneath the banner, choose 'community'
- look on the right hand side under 'latest groups' and click on the 'August Rings Competition' group (You will need to join the group before uploading).

The winner will be decided by the public and guild members; the photo that receives the greatest number of ‘likes’ on a combination of the GoJD Community pages, the GoJD Facebook page, Pinterest and the GoJD Forum*  by 15 September will win the Durston disc cutter.

We look forward to seeing your designs – Good Luck!
