The World Leather Debut is a special event for leather workers 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 three 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 to the maker. The Debut benefits contestants by providing an enjoyable event that can challenge and even enhance one’s perspective, skills and self confidence. The public enjoys the benefit of 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 leather working endeavors.
We look forward to your participation in the next World Leather Debut.
