"The Passion for Fashion Competition provides high school seniors with the opportunity to challenge themselves and to create something remarkable. The scholarship competition is a way for dedicated fashion students to let their talents stand out," said John Pufahl, Vice President, Academic Affairs for The Art Institutes. 

The competition consists of two separate categories: 1) Fashion Design and 2) Fashion Marketing & Merchandising and Retail Management.  For the Fashion Design category, entrants submit three original sketches of an evening wear garment; and for the Fashion Marketing & Merchandising and Retail Management category, entrants submit a trend forecast board.  Entrants must choose an Art Institutes school that they wish to represent in this competition, and later attend. Local competitions will take place at each participating Art Institutes school throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Each local Fashion Design competition winner and each local Fashion Marketing & Merchandising and Retail Management competition winner will earn a $3,000 tuition scholarship to The Art Institutes school they represent in the competition.  Local first place winners in each category will move on to the national competition where the national grand prize winners will be chosen by a panel of fashion industry professionals.

The Art Institutes Passion for Fashion Competition is open to legal residents of the fifty United States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Canada (excluding Quebec) who are full-or part-time high school seniors scheduled to graduate in 2013 with a minimum 2.0 cumulative grade point average.  Entries must be submitted at The Art Institutes scholarship competition site at www.AiCompetitions.com.  Entries must be submitted online by February 14, 2013.  To learn more about The Art Institutes Passion for Fashion Competition, including how to enter, to see official rules and learn about other scholarship opportunities visit www.AiCompetitions.com/fashion2013.  Follow the competition with this hashtag:  #AiCompetitions.
