The World Leather Debut is a special event for leatherworkers worldwide. Makers of any skill level are invited to enter their work and compete for cash prizes and awards in one or more of seventeen categories, two of which are designed just for youth. The entries are arranged in a gallery setting for the public to tour over a two day span during the Rocky Mountain Leather Trade Show. A select duo of judges in each category determine 1st, 2nd and 3rd placement and provide written constructive feedback of every entry to the maker. As attested to on the following page, the Debut benefits contestants by providing an enjoyable event that can challenge and even enhance one’s perspective, skills and self confidence. The public benefits by having the opportunity to view, study and appreciate the works of art on display, many returning home with excitement and inspiration to invest in their own leatherworking endeavors.
