Announcement of the 「JFW DIGITAL GRAND PRIX 2024」 winners

The Japan Fashion Week Organization (JFWO) is pleased to announce the winners of the “JFW DIGITAL GRAND PRIX 2024”.

Digital presentation has been popular to present the designers clothes during the pandemic, when it was impossible to gather people, and has developed over the past few years as content that is distinctly different from physical presentation, allowing the collection to be presented without the constraints of time and place.
The award has developed over the past few years.

In the FY2023, when this award was launched, it was open to all brands that participated in the digital presentation of each season but this year, the scope was expanded to include digital collections presented over the course of the year, as well as promotional videos and image videos of brands participating in both seasons. The jury evaluated the 21 brands that had applied on a qualitative evaluation from two main perspectives: the evaluation of the clothes presented and the evaluation of the movie works.

<Comments from the juries>
In terms of digital (video) expression, although the works met the definition of “showing the clothes” and “conveying the brand’s image and concept,” there were no works that received outstandingly high evaluations that would lead to new challenges or the development of digital expression, agreed by all the juries.

Based on the above comments, the juries have rigorously reviewed the entries and decided that there will be no “Grand Prix” for this year.

Instead, a “Special Award” will be given to the following four brands that received high scores.

The inclusion of elaborate camera work and unexpected objects creates movement to the video. It also
senses the synergy of these effects with the design of the work.

It was good how the video footage of the physical show was expressed like a “postscript”, using the brand’s unique atmosphere. Also, the images gave a sense of the realism of the show.
