    Entries are invited for the World of WearableArt (WOW) Designer Competition 2018. The WOW Design Competition is a renowned international design competition that attracts hundreds of entries from all over the world. Using the human body as a blank canvas designers create works of wearable art to be exhibited in the annual WOW Awards Show.

    For 30 years, World of WearableArt has bewitched and beguiled. Now, for this very special anniversary event, they’re once again calling on designers, artists and creators everywhere to bring to life the worlds that live in their mind for this truly international design competition.

    Perhaps you have entered before, and have been waiting for this special commemoration to return. Perhaps you enter regularly—in which case, the six worlds that have been created this year provide new scope for your art. You may never have entered before. What an extraordinary occasion on which to make your debut. In three decades, the community of designers, artists and creators have changed how audiences see life. They have put themselves on stage in a theatrical spectacular for the whole world to see. Brilliantly. Intelligently. Generously.

    Bring the world of your imagination. Celebrate your creativity!
