This year’s competition invites budding 16-25 year old fashion photographers from across the UK to create a picture that encapsulates the historical era ‘Cool Britannia’, a term coined to sum up the mood in Britain during the late 1990s which was closely associated to the fashionable London scene, the Britpop music movement and the early years of the New Labour government of Tony Blair.

A panel of judges will choose the ten best entries whose work will then be displayed at Clothes Show Live 2007, which runs at the Birmingham NEC between 7th and 12th December 2007. Final judging will take place at the show and the overall winner will receive £2000 prize money, a one week placement with a top photographer, £1000 worth of Nikon photographic equipment (RRP Value) and a VIP lunch at the show for the winner and 3 friends. The runners-up will have their work displayed at the show, plus will get the opportunity to take their own pictures in the photography pit at the fashion theatre on the day of the competition. The closing date for entries is 17th October 2007.
