Each designer will work with members from the selection committee, including Anna Wintour, Diane von Furstenberg and Jenna Lyons, to name a few. Much like last year's approach, the judging process will be filmed and aired on Ovation TV's The Fashion Fund. The winner will be awarded $300,000, while the two runners-up will receive $100,000.

Good luck all!
