This year, Jorge Manilla, a Mexican-born jewelry designer, as well as Erato Kouloubi and Niki Stylianou, Greek-born jewelry designers (organizers of Athen Jewelry Week), and Etentuk Inemesit, editor-in-chief of Artlocator magazine, form the impartial jury.

In addition to the presentations, Jorge Manilla is also conducting a five-day themed workshop designed specifically for the Jewelry Night event, and attended by a team of 12 Hungarian artists.
