createurope: The Fashion Academy Award

Deadline: June 30, 2008

createurope: The Fashion Academy Award

createurope: The Fashion Academy Award is a Europe-wide competition for young fashion designers and fashion design students.

On the initiative of the Goethe-Institute and in cooperation with EUNIC Berlin, the European partnership of national institutions for culture in Berlin, this year the competition createurope: The Fashion Academy Award will be held for the first time. The objective of the contest is to create links between European fashion training schools in addition to promoting lasting, active dialogue between students and teachers, initially on the European and later on the international level.

One of the chief instruments for establishing this European network is the website, where all private and public fashion schools in Europe can present themselves. Here, a potential young designer from Greece, for example, who would like to study fashion design in another country, can obtain an overview of the content, courses of study, conditions and costs of different European fashion schools. As yet, fashion schools from 28 countries are supporting the competition. Institutes such as the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London, Village des Créateurs in Lyon and the Mimar Sinan University of Fine Arts in Istanbul and many other European fashion schools are giving the project great support.

Creative young people can find information on contest entry requirements at the website Every entrant must send their submissions to the Goethe-Institute Berlin by 30 June 2008. A European jury made up of fashion journalists and designers will select a maximum of 30 finalists from all of Europe by the end of July 2008. The finalists will be notified that same month and invited to attend the final elimination ceremony in Berlin in mid-October 2008, to present their collections at a large fashion show.
