ITS planted the first seed in 2002 to support young creativity with ITS FASHION, branching out to include several other fields throughout the years. In 2005, the photography field came to life with ITS PHOTO. ITS ACCESSORIES was launched the following year, in response to the market’s need for talented accessories designers. Then came ITS JEWELLERY in 2011, the first contest entirely dedicated to contemporary jewellery. ITS 2014 saw the birth of ITS ARTWORK, dedicated to the development of purely artistic concepts, while at ITS 2015 we presented the Samsung Galaxy Award. The ITS Made in FVG project at ITS 2016 highlighted the excellence of the manufacturing capabilities of the Friuli Venezia Giulia region in Italy, while ITS 2018 challenged all finalists to be bold and fearless presenting their creations. 2019 saw the launch of the ITS Fashion @ Work project by illycaffè, which challenged a selected number of finalists with a radical re-design of the traditional barista’s apron.
