The panel will review the submitted portfolios in late July and choose ten finalists who will then be assigned a final project
that will be reviewed at the end of the summer. The winner will be announced during a private ceremony in September during New York Fashion Week.  In addition to being honored at the ceremony, the winner will receive a prize package including $10,000, a one-year mentorship with Art+Commerce, as well as a mentorship with Ivan Shaw at Vogue, and also the opportunity to shoot an exclusive project for Bottega Veneta which will be announced later this year.
