Every year, a panel of judges carefully reviews and evaluates each submission for workmanship, originality, use of colors, accessories and use of Duck Tape®. Though narrowing the field of entries down to the top finalists is no doubt a difficult task, the intricate designs and artistry of each of the outfits set them apart from the rest and blew the judges away.
