For the third year running, Suzy Amis Cameron is accepting entries for her “Red Carpet Green Dress Contest.” The wife of famous director James Cameron started the eco-fashion competition back in 2010 as a way for budding designers to get their sustainable designs in front of the world.

This year’s winner will have their dress worn on the red carpet of the 84th Academy Awards (February 26th) by a “surprise actress.” They will also receive hands-on guidance for an industry expert, all the sustainable materials they need to construct the gown, roundtrip airfare, three-nights hotel, and various meets-and-greets. Suzy will also provide a guided tour of her MUSE school – considered one of the most environmentally-friendly education centers ever created.

Entries are $65 each – with the submitted design for the gown using only “natural, organic or recycled fabric/material.” The contest ends on the 16th, with a winner announced on the 20th.
