About WOW

The World of WearableArt (WOW) Awards Competition is an internationally renowned wearable art competition that, each year, attracts entries from over 40 countries around the world. The Awards Competition is an opportunity for designers to create the unimaginable, to challenge the conventional, and defy creative expectations.

For three weeks every year, the finalist garments in the Competition are showcased in a spectacular show that takes over New Zealand’s vibrant capital city of Wellington in an explosion of creativity. Today garments are brought to life on stage in front of an audience of over 60,000 people.

Sections & Judging

The 2020 worlds of WOW

The Judging Process

Each year, finalist garments are selected through three rounds of closed judging. The judging panel comprises of WOW Founder and Resident Judge, Dame Suzie Moncrieff, and two guests judges, from the worlds of art and fashion, who are invited to be part of the panel.

For the 2019 World of WearableArt Awards, Dame Suzie Moncrieff was joined by designer James Dobson of Jimmy D, and acclaimed multimedia artist Gregor Kregar

During 2019 Awards Week, the judging panel was joined by guest judges Melissa Thompson (Cirque du Soleil), Sir Richard Taylor (Weta Workshop) and B. Akerlund (The Residency Experience).
