From Standing Room Only, 12:38 pm on 20 September 2015

There's a high flying new prize in this year's World of Wearable Art Awards Show. The 2015 Performance Art Costume Award will be presented to an entry that 'could dwell in the spectacular & magical world of the circus'. It's being judged by someone who knows exactly what that means - he's Benoit Mathieu, Vice President of Costumes and Creative Spaces for international circus company, Cirque du Soleil. The winner of the award will receive $5000 in prize money, plus an internship at the world famous Cirque du Soleil International Headquarters in Montreal, Canada. The awards will be announced Friday 25 September 2015 in Wellington.
