A newly conceived "Fashion and Film contest" will feature film entries shown under the CFW tents in Marion Sqaure.

After opening for submissions on December 19, 2012, contestants have until February 19 to supply a two-minute fashion film short in order to be eligable for admittance in the CFW Fashion and Film contest. Winning films will be announced in early March, as CFW will take place March 19 to 23. 

Films will be judged by a panel comprised of principals and editors from Charleston Fashion Week, Tout Pictures, Production Design Associates, and the Film Department of the Art Institute of Charleston. Up to five winners will each recieve a $200 cash prize, along with two tickets to the March 20, 2013 show of CFW. In addition, winners may also recieve a public showing of his or her film under the CFW tents, as well as possible inclusion of the piece on CFW's website and YouTube page.
