Los Angeles, CA, November 11, 2013 – To accommodate designers in the Philippines who have been struggling, due to the typhoon, to ﬁnish entry materials by November 11th, campaign founder Suzy Amis Cameron has extended the contest deadline for all potential entrants to November 29th. Our thoughts are with those who have been affected by this tragedy.
The ﬁfth year of the campaign commenced on October 11th and will culminate when this year’s winning design is worn to the 86th Annual Academy Awards® on Sunday, March 2, 2014.
This year, a menswear component is being added to the competition for the ﬁrst time. Designers who wish to enter must submit a sketch of a gown or a tux, along with an
explanation of how their design would be made sustainably. Two winners will be chosen and paired with established designers who will mentor them through the creation of their designs. This year’s mentoring designer will be announced very soon and will certainly entice potential entrants.
Many thanks and GOOD LUCK!
