One of Hollywood’s greener couples, James Cameron and his wife Suzy Amis Cameron‘s commitment to helping the environment are well-known (like how the Avatar sequels will benefit green charities). Now, for the second year in a row, Amis Cameron is organizing a green competition: design an eco-friendly dress to be worn on the red carpet!

With the Red Carpet, Green Dress competition, Amis Cameron aims to raise awareness about eco-fashion: she herself makes a point of wearing an eco-friendly dress at the Oscars each year. Additionally, the competition raises money for the MUSE Global program, which helps fund schools in Thailand for refugee children from Burma.

The winner of the competition will get a $2,000 cash prize, travel, a four-night stay at the Georgian Hotel in Santa Monica, a visit to MUSE headquarters, and the opportunity to arrive in style (and in a limo) at the red carpet event for the Global Green pre-Oscar party. There, the winner will walk the red carpet with the model of his or her choice who will wear the winning dress. And, of course, gets the satisfaction of knowing that he or she designed an ethical but stylish gown.

The application deadline is February 2nd at 5:00pm (after all, the Oscars are coming up soon!), so if you’re a designer and want to enter, hurry! You can find details on the website as to where to send your sketch. A $75 entry fee will be required, which will go toward the charities the competition supports.
