Futuristic Design Contest Rules, Sample

The rules have been arrived at by trial and error, sometimes more error than we would like.  What you have here is the skeleton for a Future Fashion Design contest.  These are only a sample and do not reflect any specific contest.

Explanation of rules <here>

1. All designs must be ORIGINAL IDEAS. You can draw your design on a traced figure or have someone else draw it for you, but the idea itself must be original. If someone other than the designer is drawing the design, please give them credit on the back of the design. Please be neat.

2. All designs must be on 8.5" by 11"  ( or A4) sheets of paper. (We would prefer white.) Detail work or back views may be put on extra sheets.

3. Your name and address MUST be marked clearly on the back of EACH AND EVERY design sheet submitted, NOT just on the envelope or just one of the entries.

4. You may, in fact we encourage you to, submit your designs in color. But we MUST have a black and white line copy of your design for reproduction in the Fashion Folio.  This means black ink on white 8.5" by 11" paper.  Please make sure your black and white copy is clean and will reproduce well.

5. DO NOT SEND US ORIGINAL ARTWORK. All designs should be photo-copies or any other clear, non-smudging reproduction.

6. If you color your design, DO NOT use anything that requires spray fixative, or may smear, smudge, stick, or flake off on other people's drawings.

7. Number entries consecutively on the back in the upper right hand corner. Example: If you submit 4 designs, they will be numbered as follows - #1 of 4, #2 of 4, etc. Your black and white set should be labeled B/W #1 of 4, etc.

8. Enter as many designs as you wish and as often as you wish, PRIOR TO THE DEADLINE OF xxxxxxxx xx, 20xx.

9. Please identify the source of your inspiration (if any) on the back of the design. Book, poem, movie, TV, or your own imagination.

10. Please let us know what category you think your design should be in, sportswear, bridal, etc.  You can include design details, fabric suggestions, and colors if you want.  The Folio Director and the Judges do reserve the right to shift the category of a design if necessary.  (This sometimes happens in heavily entered categories to give more designs a chance to win.)

11. Your designs will not be returned unless you request it and have also included a BIG ENOUGH SASE with SUFFICIENT POSTAGE on it, with your designs.

12. By submitting your designs to Costume Con you agree to the non-profit use and publication of said designs by Costume Con, prior to and during the run of the convention, also their reproduction in the Fashion Show.  All rights revert back to the designer after the convention.
