ITS - International Talent Support is a platform for creative minds. Their mission is to give visibility, support and a voice to young talent from all over the world. They offer the chance to liberate creativity through financial opportunities, work placements and occasions to have their work shown to a jury made up of real experts.

Their major support is from major brand DIESEL, through the assignment  of the DIESEL AWARD, an important prize for one of the fashion competition finalists.

About 10-15 finalists will be selected to come to Trieste, Italy on 13-14 July 2012 for a collective fashion show. ITS 2012 will be a showcase of the highest expressions of creativity from the world’s leading fashion schools.
Renzo Rosso, founder & president of Diesel, will select the Diesel Award winner from the Fashion finalists. The award consists of a cash prize of €25,000 that the winner can use, without limitations, to promote their work in the best possible way and to invest in their career. On top of that, the winner will be offered an internship within the Diesel Creative Team at its HQ in Italy to discover all the secrets of working in a unique, innovative and international fashion environment.
