A few more details have come from the Content camp about the application process for designers who (wisely) want to be a part of the 2010 edition, once again taking over the Portland Ace Hotel for a massive exhibition of apparel and accessories design. (I'm particularly happy that this year they're adding a retail component—better start saving now.) Anyhow, any designers who are considering throwing their hat in the ring (I'm on the submissions board, full disclosure—give us lots to work with!) should reference this earlier post in addition to the following updates:

-Deadline to submit is June 20.

-Designers will be announced no later than July 15.

-Designer fees/deposits will be due by July 31.

-A $75 cancelation fine will be charged for any designers whom back out before Aug 31, and designers will be fined full charged for backing out after Aug 31.

-Deadline to Submit 1 Look For Photoshoot/Promotional Work is Sept 1.

-Deadline to Submit 10 items for Retial Space will be Sept 15.

-Room Assignments will be Announced Sept 1.

If for some sad reason you missed it last year, check out a few shots to give you an idea of what you're in for (all taken by Jesse Champlin).
