ITS ARTWORK COMPETITION
In all these years we found out that besides their skills and technical knowledge the ideas and visions of young designers are remarkable and unique. ITS ARTWORK is a brand new contest and looks for what is inside their heads and in their hearts. ITS ARTWORK is open to fashion, accessories and jewelry designers who are participating in ITS 2014 in ITS FASHION, in ITS ACCESSORIES or in ITS JEWELRY. The content of their portfolios and what lies behind it will be evaluated and will allow them to become ITS ARTWORK finalists.
SWATCH has been defined many times as “the biggest art gallery in the world” and is the main partner of ITS ARTWORK. To ITS ARTWORK 2014 finalists, Swatch would like to offer the opportunity to depict and represent their own point of view on the Brand.
The Finals of ITS 2014 will be on 11-12 July. 10 finalists will be selected to come to Trieste, Italy, to display their brainchild in a dedicated exhibition, for a showcase of the highest expressions of creativity from the world’s leading fashion, accessories & jewelry schools.

The winner of the SWATCH Award will receive €10,000 + a remunerated internship in the Swatch Creative Lab.
ITS provides real opportunities and represents a bridge between young designers and the industry. All of the work placements, internships and special projects granted to the finalists after the event prove it. In our Past Finalists Today section you can appreciate where our finalists work now and who is receiving recognition for their own brand. Furthermore, we collaborate regularly for work placements with several brands like Diesel, Antonio Marras, MaxMara, Armani and Viktor & Rolf, to mention but a few.
