WOMENS AND MENS RACEWEAR

Z

Put your most stylish foot forward in Australia’s most prestigious fashion competition.

The Melbourne Cup Carnival fashion competition has long stood at the pinnacle of Australia’s fashion calendar. 

This year will be no different. The very best of the very best will compete virtually, with Womens and Mens Racewear categories
headlining the entire competition.

The select few who rise to the top from each State and Territory will then go on to the National Final, where one will be crowned winner. 

Even in unique new formats, one thing stays unchanged: The tradition and meaning of the competition will always remain a
celebration of fashion and racing.

This year the competition will be conducted completely online with female and male contestants from all over Australia invited to compete from home. Finalists will be selected by a panel of high-profile professionals in the fashion industry to represent all 8 States and Territories across Australia for each of the Womens and Mens Racewear categories in the National Final.

To enter, simply submit photographs of your racewear outfit taken around your home. It may include your front lawn, backyard, driveway or porch. In a first for the competition, contestants are invited to submit up to four individual racewear outfits through the
duration of the entry period.
