Rules and Guidelines
Nagoya Fashion Contest 2012 is calling for unpublished and original fashion designs with distinct styles for women, men or children (age 4 or 5). There are no restrictions on the category (i.e., entries can be for any season, formal or casual), or the number of works you can submit.


Entry Requirements

The competition is open to everyone (but participation by groups having two or more members is not permitted).
However, your fashion design sketches must be feasible (i.e., realizable), and you must be able to attend in person at your own cost the final public judging and the rehearsal the day before, both to take place in Nagoya City.


Judging Criteria

Entries will be judged for expressiveness, originality, and quality of finish.


How to Enter
 
Produce a colored design sketch (only originals, not photocopies, will be accepted) on a B4-size (257x364 mm, 10x14 inches) sheet of drawing paper. On the same sheet you may include swatches and other related images as necessary. Complete a design description form and entry form for each sketch, and attach them to the sketch. (See the sample layout below. You can download Design Description Form and Entry Form (format:PDF) from here.)

Entry Fee
Each sketch submitted requires an entry fee of 500 yen (incl. consumption tax). Please enclose with your sketch a money order (teigaku kogawase or futsu kawase issued by Japan Post Bank within 6 months, without filling in the sections for payees' name and address) for the necessary amount.
* If you are sending 2 or more sketches, you may combine teigaku kogawase of any value to make up the total amount. If you are sending 9 or more sketches, futsu kawase is recommended.
* The entry fee is waived for entries from outside Japan.


Deadline for Submissions

Entries must be received by Friday, May 25, 2012. (No submissions will be received after the deadline.)
* E-mail submissions are not accepted. Please send entries by post or courier.
