In 2006 The American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC) announced its second annual design competition developed by its Concept 2 Consumer® (C2C) Interest Group and the Computer Integrated Textile Design Association (CITDA) in August 2005. Submissions for the C2C/CITDA competition were accepted from both graduate and undergraduate students of institutions with textile design programs and those with art, interior design, and fashion merchandising programs. The aim of the competition is to promote innovative product development.The theme of this year’s competition was “Shades of Comfort,” and the contest was divided into two main categories and two sub-categories:

Print Design – students created a digitally rendered textile print collection
Interior Design-Decorative Pillows or Throws
Apparel Design-Children’s Casual Wear, 2-6x; Spring/Summer Season
Product Design – students created a textile print collection and an actual end product
Interior Design-Decorative Pillows or Throws
Apparel Design-Children’s Casual Wear, 2-6x; Spring/Summer Season

Entries were evaluated on color, texture, appearance, reproducibility, and overall presentation.

Five finalists in each sub-category were asked to submit story boards and final products for judging on May 1, 2006. Winners were announced at AATCC’s C2C Interest Group meeting, held in conjunction with the semi-annual AATCC Committee Meetings on May 3. The winning entries in each sub-category will be awarded US$1,000 for first place and US$500 for second place. Winners will also receive complimentary student registration for the AATCC International Conference & Exhibition, co-located with MEGATEX, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Ga., October 31-November 2, 2006.
