Now in their 31st year, the World of WearableArt (WOW) Awards have opened for submissions for 2019 to designers, artists and makers from all parts of the world.
Participants are invited to create the unimaginable, ignore the conventional, and defy creative expectations as they make works of art that will be brought to life on a global stage at the annual World of WearableArt Awards Show. Anything that is wearable art can find a place on the stage, as long as it is original, innovative and well executed.
For participants, WOW offers prize money, profile and promotion, networking opportunities, and access to exclusive internships and residencies.
Each year, the competition includes six sections and the sections for 2019 are described in details on the official website: worldofwearableart.com/competition/
WOW showcases the best creations in a spectacular show that takes over New Zealand’s vibrant capital city of Wellington in an explosion of creativity. This year 60,000 people will see the show.
World of WearableArt (WOW) attracts entries from over 40 countries each year.
