The Institute for Entrepreneurship and Economic Development (IPER), in cooperation with the Association of Old Crafts and Skills NIT, within the project “Preservation and development of traditional Montenegrin crafts – gold embroidery”, announces :
Call for the creation of a conceptual solution
for the product with gold embroidery motive
We invite all interested to express their creativity and suggest the conceptual solution for the product with the motive of a unique Montenegrin gold embroidery by transposing ornaments in gold embroidery from the collar of the Montenegrin women’s shirt.
We espect that through the conceptual solution , the golden embroidery will be used in a new, modern and different way and on the objects that are close to modern buyers/ tourists, while respecting the old technique of gold embroidery that is represented on the collar of the Montenegrin women’s shirt.
The material on which it is possible to transfer the created golden motive (which is connected to the panes) must be available, i.e. that it is possible to buy it in Montenegro.
The submitted proposals must be in digital vector format in color version and in pdf.
The authors of the conceptual decisions selected by the expert commission will be paid a fee in the amount of 250,00€ in gross amount.
Based on selected conceptual solutions, prototypes will be developed in order to create three new products, which the Association of Old Crafts and Skills Nit will offer to the market.
It is possible to deliver more than one application.
The application must contain a textual description of the conceptual solution of the product.
The application should be submitted in a sealed main envelope containing two also sealed envelopes:
- Envelope No. 1 shall contain:
– Conceptual product solution with explanation, printed unilaterally on office paper. On each paper in the lower right corner must be the code under which the author is applying.

The code is composed of letters and numerical characters, which in no way compromise the applicant’s anonymity. The same code must be entered on entire documentation. In case an individual/team want to compete with different proposals, each proposal has different code.
