JemCon 2020 Fashion Design Contest

The theme for the 2020 Jemcon fashion contest is Under the Cherry Moon, in honor of native Minnesotan PRINCE. Design an outrageous fashion with a REVOLUTIONary vibe for everyone's favorite rock stars! This year, you may design for any of the women dolls, OR for Rio/Riot.

Set your mind free, baby, and be original! Prince would want it that way, rather than having anyone directly copy his or The Revolution’s outfits. (And you don’t have to limit yourself to the look of the film Under the Cherry Moon, either.)

Remember the design must be manageable to sew in small scale, which is needed for designs to be accepted.

Submit your designs on using the templates provided by December 1, 2019. Voting will happen in early December and the winner will be announced on or before December 20.

Who can enter the fashion contest?

The fashion contest is open to everybody around the world!

When do entries need to be received by?

Who decides on the finalists?

The JemCon fashion coordinator and JemCon chair will review all submissions and evaluate for originality, creativity, and ease of execution.

When are finalists notified?

Who decides on the winning fashion?

Jem fans just like you do! While the JemCon fashion coordinator and JemCon chair decide which fashions make it into the finals, the winning fashion is decided on by a majority vote from the general public.

When is the winning fashion announced?

The winning fashion will be announced once all the votes have been counted.

What does the winning designer get?

The winning fashion designer will receive design credit and their very own custom made fashion. The fashion will be made available to JemCon 2020 attendees and supporting members of the 2020 convention.

Anything else I should know?

By entering the contest you grant JemCon and all associated parties an indefinite, nontransferable license to use your design and derivatives of your design for promotional and fundraising purposes associated with JemCon.
