DALLAS, TX (October 26, 2020) – The American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) is thrilled to announce the winners of the highly-esteemed 2020 AGTA Spectrum Awards™. The competition was held on October 24th and 25th; due to travel restrictions, the event was moved to Dallas this year.
"This year's event was a little different than the past few years. A few months ago, we had to decide if we could make Spectrum happen. We made many personal phone calls to past entrants to gauge interest, and they overwhelmingly wanted to participate. We were incredibly lucky to have these outstanding judges dedicate their time to us, especially in light of COVID restrictions," said Douglas K. Hucker, AGTA CEO. "We had separate rooms for each of the categories and PPE procedures in place, but we still had an amazing collaboration amongst the judges." With over a 20% increase in entries this year and many first-time entrants, the 2020 AGTA Spectrum Awards™ were a much-needed outlet for designers. "The foundation of this industry is creativity, even during these trying times," said Hucker, "it's a privilege to be able to provide an outlet for that creativity."
