The awards are split into the following 4 categories plus a collaborative:
A portrait is a painting, illustration, collage, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expressions are predominant, though in a full-length one the body will take up more space. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. For this reason, a portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image of a person in a still position. A portrait often shows a person looking directly at the painter, in order to most successfully engage the subject with the viewer.
Beauty is in some ways a form of pleasure. For those of you that love pampering and treating yourselves, experimenting with makeup, hair, and fashion, you’ve probably noticed that your mood and the way you feel about yourself can be elevated simply by applying makeup on your face, styling your hair, and dressing in a sexy outfit.
Where beauty focuses more on your visual perception of your overall appearance, fashion is the perfect match to compliment your looks by handpicking the right clothing, footwear, and accessories. In Beauty, accessories can ramp up your style and give you a totally different look.
Fashion Beauty is your distinctive, signature look. It’s your own personal style.
Multidisciplinary in Fashion has become a fertile field of study for creatives across all disciplines, now that the rules, once tightly fixed, have been deconstructed. This award brings in artists from various disciplines - film makers, animators, cgi artists, drawers, digital artists and handcrafted creatives - to create artworks for fashion's complex relationship with new modes of image making. Now the barriers are down, this is an opportunity for any type of image maker to push the envelope of expression, to create a new visual language.
A still life is a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which are either natural (food, flowers, dead animals, plants, rocks, shells, etc.) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewellery, coins, pipes, etc.) A fashion still life can juxtapose fashion products with any other objects of the past of today mixing traditional with commercial.
