PERFECTION IN MINIATURE AWARDS 2021
The Perfection in Miniature Awards have become an important part of our annual calendar & are always something we are very excited about. In 2021 we were not disappointed.
After the incredible entries we received for the 2020 PIMA, we hoped the craftsmen who have attended our shows over the last year would be able to produce some equally enthralling work. As you can see from the gallery below, we had some stunning entries which made judging this year very difficult.
Ahmed Al Thani, a collector of miniatures & a friend of Kensington Dollshouse Festival, came up with the idea for the PIMA back in 2015. He wanted to encourage our talented makers to really push themselves & create something that usually, they wouldn’t have the need to do. Often makers get caught up with orders & commissions, which makes it hard to focus on creating something new.
Not only was Ahmed the founder of this competition but he is also the sponsor & provides an incredibly generous prize package that can be a great help to our hard working craftsmen.
As usual, all the entries were on display at the KDF London Showcase. This is an incredibly varied collection of work from our talented makers & once again the visitors to our show were able to vote for their favourite entries in the ‘People’s Choice Award’ (PCA). Interestingly, this time the winner of the PCA was different from our main winner, but many of the highly commended pieces were runners up in the PCA too.
The gallery below shows the winners, runners up & all the entries in this year’s competition. We will be post more info & photos on some of the entries soon.

We currently have one competition, organised by us, to encourage our makers to improve their work try out new techniques.
