Get embroidering until July and then submit images of your work. The first stage doesn’t require anything physical, just six images* of your work.

*Six images must comprise of three research images (concept, mood boards, embroidery samples, etc.) and three images that show your final design or, if not yet completed, what your final design will look like. Please note that judges will use these images to determine who goes through to the next round and it is vital they understand your overall vision.


The Prize Categories


Fashion entrants should design a fashion garment that takes inspiration from the Prize brief. Your submission should be constructed to fit a typical model (UK size 6 to 8) and showcase your design skill as well as your ability to embroider. Judges will look at your concept, execution, construction, embroidery skill and overall presentation.


Entrants should examine the brief and produce an object that showcases their embroidery skills. The object could be a piece of jewellery, an artistic sculpture, an embroidered tapestry, a piece for home interior design etc. Judges will look at originality, embroidery technique, execution, construction and overall presentation.
