ITS#TEN, the ‘International Talent Support’ platform dedicated to upcoming talents in the fields of fashion, accessories, jewelry and photography, is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, taking place in Trieste, Italy, July 15-16.

The creative platform event, created and organized by EVE, an agency which supports young creative talents worldwide, will consist of four areas: ITS#FASHION, whose main partner is Diesel, ITS#ACCESSORIES, supported by YKK , ITS#PHOTO - in partnership with liquor Disaronno - and, a debuting new section, ITS#JEWELRY, whose main partner is Swarovski Elements.

The initiative will accept new projects and applications until March 25, 2011. Pre-selections will already be made in mid-April while the ITS#TEN finalists will be announced by the end of April. The final contest will take place in Trieste on July 15 with a special exhibition dedicated to ITS#ACCESSORIES, ITS#PHOTO and ITS#JEWELRY.
