As Australasia’s only international emerging designer competition, the iD International Emerging Designer Awards is your opportunity to be seen on a world stage.

Every year, the competition attracts hundreds of entries from around the globe and, if chosen as a finalist, you must travel to Dunedin to be part of judging day – where your collection is critiqued by a prestigious judging panel – and the Awards runway show.

Past international judges have included Martin Grant, Stephen Jones, Emilia Wickstead, Paulo Melim Andersson, Lutz Huelle, Akira Isogawa, Hilary Alexander and more.  Cash, special prizes and high profile internships are on offer.

Applications for the iD International Emerging Designer Awards 2018 have now closed. Applications for 2019 will open in October 2018.

The 2017 iD Fashion Week showcased some incredible design talent. Check out our gallery of designers from 2017.
