Designers including Peter Pilotto, Sinha-Stanic, Josh Goot and Jean Pierre Braganza, are among ten finalists competing for the lucrative €300,000 prize.

They will have to impress five of the world's leading design schools, such as London's Central Saint Martins, Paris's Institut Francais de la Mode, and Milan's Istituto Marangoni, with their creative designs.

Each finalist will be given €18,000 to produce a collection, to be showcased at the final award ceremony in May next year. Click here for more information about the awards.

C'mon Josh Goot (S/S '09 pictured) - yes, I'm rooting for the Aussie, no surprises there!
