Nominating Bodies


Entry to participate in the International Woolmark Prize is by invitation only through the regional nominating bodies – the most respected committees, councils and/or media supporting the local industry. All bodies are committed to putting forward outstanding achievers in womenswear and menswear, adhering to a specific set of criteria. In the early stages of their career, the nominees, who aren’t necessarily recent graduates, have shown promise and dedication in growing a business and are yet to be established in a global sense. Nominating bodies also support the prize through digital and social media coverage, and provide mentorship throughout the submission process.
