The American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC) encourages creativity in textile and product design by offering cash and prizes to top student designers. In this competition developed by AATCC's Concept 2 Consumer (C2C) interest group, students can submit their original fabric designs, product designs, or both!

Gear up for fashion and fun in the sun with this year's theme, Summer Bling! Students should submit designs for pool and beachwear such as swimwear, cover-ups, totes, hats, etc. incorporating 3-dimensional embellishments using a color palette from the Pantone View Colour Planner Summer 2010 'magic'. Entry deadline for designs on CD is December 15, 2009. Five finalists in each category will be asked to submit story boards and final products for judging.

First place winning entries in each category will be awarded US$1,000 and a copy of Pantone's Cotton Passport. Second place winning entries for each category will be awarded US$500. Winners will be announced to all participants and press on March 18, 2010.

All AATCC student members are eligible! For those that are not yet student members, it's as simple as submitting a completed student membership application and a US$35 membership fee along with an entry.

AATCC is the world's leading not-for-profit association serving textile professionals since 1921. AATCC, headquartered in Research Triangle Park, N.C., USA, provides test method development, quality control materials, and professional networking for members in about 60 countries throughout the world.
