The competition has now been running since 1975. Its purpose is to encourage students to create practical yet original glove designs. The judges look for designs that show a commercial aspect in respect of the ease of manufacture and sell-ability.

The Worshipful Company of Glovers is one of the ancient livery companies that once controlled and regulated their craft in the City of London. Nowadays, whilst continuing to retain strong links with their original trades, they are active in maintaining the traditions of the City and support education and charities in the wider community.
