A message from the team at Amazon:

On the day of the competition, each team will be challenged to create an editorial campaign image styled with merchandise from Amazon Fashion’s holiday-season fashion closet. We will provide each team with it’s own photography bay, as well as all of the necessary tools to create a compelling editorial message (e.g. models, hair and makeup artists, wardrobe assistants, props, equipment, etc.). Each team will present their final work to a panel or judges from Amazon Fashion’s esteemed executive team. The winning womenswear and menswear category will be featured on Amazon.com/Fashion!

The first-place teams in each category will receive $25,000 ($5,000 per each first-place winner), the second-place teams in each category will receive $10,000 ($2,000 per each second-place winner).
****Please note that students who have participated in previous Studio Sessions are not eligible to participate in the 2015 competition.
