Independent designers are invited to enter their fur-free fashions for a chance to win cash prizes, boost their fashion careers, and help promote the ethical and environmental benefits of foregoing fur fashion.

Top entries will be judged and winners selected by two-time Emmy Award-winner Julia Barr, longtime star in All My Children and an outspoken animal supporter, actress Kristin Bauer, who plays Pam on HBO’s hit series True Blood; Brita Belli, editor of E/The Environmental Magazine; Rachelle Carson-Begley, co-star of Living with Ed on Discovery’s Planet Green; and international designer Elizabeth Emanuel, perhaps most famous for creating Princess Diana’s wedding dress. Summer Rayne Oakes, eco-model, activist and green living expert, will select a winner of the Green Award.
