Since its launch, more than 9,000 artisans overall have received the award and since 1928, 53 hat makers have attained the title, with eight awards being presented since the 2000s, including one in 2018.The national MOF award is judged by a jury of professionals under the auspices of an organising committee. Since 2011, the millinery candidates have to make six hats from a theme, and are required to outline both their technical and their creative process.More information www.museeduchapeau.com/exposition-mof.htmlAt Chazelles-sur-Lyon
