SDC in search for undergraduate talent in fashion & textile design

Following the success of the recent global student design competition, the Society of Dyers and Colourists (SDC) is now launching the search for undergraduate talent in fashion and textile design.

Entries will be invited for the SDC Colour Design Award 2009 from students following a recognised fashion/textile undergraduate course, with regional heats to be held around the world early next year.

The competition is open to entries from the following countries: Australia, Bangladesh, China, Hong Kong, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Each SDC region/affiliate around the globe, together with the AATCC in the United States, will organise its own competition based on a universal brief. Each country finalist will then be invited to go forward to the grand final which will be held in Goa, India in June 2009.

The grand final will coincide with the SDC international conference on 25–26 June in India and, to tie with the theme of the conference, the brief also incorporates an aspect of sustainable thinking within the original design and/or final design application. The main criteria for entries, as previously, will be to demonstrate the creative, imaginative and original use of colour in either fashion or textiles.

Deadlines for submission will be dependent on specific regional/country criteria, with judging generally taking place within the first quarter of 2009. All regional winners will be informed by the end of April 2009 and, along with the regional prize allocation, the finalist from each country will also receive payment towards travelling expenses and accommodation in India.

The global winner will receive the SDC Colour Design Award 2009, with a cash prize of £1000, plus the Veronica Bell Trophy. The winning college will also receive a prize.

A full design competition brief is available from the Society with a list of regional contacts to whom enquiries regarding country-specific briefs should be sent. Alternatively, the competition briefs and various related document can be downloaded from the SDC website.
