Conditions of Entry 2014

Conditions of Entry: The preceding information is correct at time of publishing, May 2014

All matters relating to the Awards, including the decisions of the judges shall be final. The TISA design awards competition is open to students who are in their final year of study. The competition seeks excellent textile and fashion design students who are capable and ready to advance their professional education/careers overseas immediately following the awards presentation, July 2015.

It is not possible to defer the up-take of the Paris American Academy course position as course timing is pre-determined by the Paris American Academy schedule.

The Grand Prize winner will receive The Textile Institute/IFC Prize, which includes accommodation and tuition at a four-week Summer Fashion workshop at the Paris American Academy, in Paris. The course provides tuition from skilled, professional personnel, Included in the course are visits to Paris fashion releases and to selected world famous fashion houses. The prize does not include return airfare to Paris.

The Grand Prize winner is expected to provide a report of their study experience published in relevant industry reports and presented at events such as the following year’s awards showcase.

The design competition concept is formulated on a single entrant system as there is only one Student place available at the Paris American Academy. Teams of 2 or more students may register; however, we request that teaching staff provide details, at the time of registration, of practical circumstances leading to syndication and an agreement how a potential prize would be shared.

All material will remain the property of the creator. All design and garment/product pieces and other display materials are to be labelled with student’s name, address and contact phone number. Also include a reliable email address - please maintain any email address updates.

It is an understanding that the Textile Institute will use this competition to generate publicity, and the creators of winning entries may be featured in various publications and on the Textile Institute Website. To this end we request the cooperation of the winners and their mentors in post- competition publicity exercises.

The funds for any 2014 Travel Award will be allocated as recommended by the judging panel and on submission from the entrant to TISA, of rationale and original receipts.
