The 2015 Vilcek Prizes for Creative Promise in Fashion is now open for entries. The competition is seeking applications from young, foreign-born fashion professionals age 38 and under.
The Creative Promise Prizes aim to encourage and support young immigrants who have already demonstrated exceptional achievements early in their careers.
Eligible applicants include fashion designers, stylists, hair/makeup artists, writers, curators, photographers, filmmakers and illustrators.
"The United States has some of the world's capitals of fashion, where talents from around the globe come to study the craft and make a name for themselves," commented Marica Vilcek, vice president of the Vilcek Foundation.
"The significant contributions of immigrant fashion professionals behind the runways reflect the multicultural identity of this country. And we are excited to recognize, with the Vilcek Prizes for Creative Promise, those foreign-born individuals who have helped shape American fashion."
The deadline for applications is June 10, 2014.
