ITS ARTWORK was created in 2014 with the Main Partner SWATCH - defined many times as “the biggest art gallery on the wrist” - to discover the most artistic-oriented young talents and challenge them with the production of a unique work of art, based on an artistic brief. The fashion, accessories and jewelry contestants of the fifteenth edition ITS 2016 will all be potential candidates for ITS ARTWORK. The content of their portfolios will be evaluated by a Jury made of the most respected experts in this field, who will decide the finalists that will come to Italy to display their brainchild in a dedicated exhibition. 

Swatch will provide a support of €500 to all the ITS ARTWORK Finalists in the production of their items (for their special projects). The winner of the SWATCH Award will receive a cash prize of €10,000 and a six months paid experience by the Swatch LAB in Zurich. The ITS ARTWORK Award winner will receive a cash prize of a minimum of €10,000. ITS and Swatch are looking forward to being fascinated by you and your vision, and seeing the facet of your creativity closer to art.

The deadline to enrol online was March 21st, while portfolios had to reach our offices by March 24th. In order to participate to ITS Artwork you had to be a fashion, accessories or jewelry designer applied to either FASHION, ACCESSORIES or JEWELRY.
