An exciting new programme of competitions is being launched by The Clothes Show, in an attempt to track down the next big names in fashion writing, photography and design.

Three competitions have been launched in the run up to The Clothes Show’s eponymous event, which will take place at Birmingham’s NEC between 4th and 8th December, as part of the brand’s annual Creative Awards.

The National Student is partnering up with The Clothes Show for the Young Journalist of the Year competition, which is looking to find a thoughtful voice on the subject of social media in fashion.

You can find full details of the Young Journalist of the Year competition, as well as that of Young Photographer and Young Designer, below.

Winners will receive various prizes – including £500 worth of prize money and work experience with The National Student for the crowned Young Journalist of the Year.

The 2015 awards programme is an opportunity for students to show off their skills in art, design, journalism and photography, whilst gaining experience of working to a project brief.

All finalists will be invited to the Creative Award Ceremony, hosted by fashion critic Caryn Franklin on Tuesday 8th December at The Clothes Show in association with ALCATEL ONETOUCH.

Finalists will also have the chance to see their designs presented on the Image Catwalk, before hearing the winners be announced.

The three winners will receive prizes for both themselves and their educational establishment, details of which are included in the briefs below.

The awards are now open for entries, and we think that this is an amazing opportunity to get your work out there and noticed by major brands at one of the top fashion events of the year – whether your talent lays in writing, fashion design or photography.
