Our world is shaken by a virus and turned upside down. After the lock down, we all have to start over - We therefore chose white.

“The white dove of peace and freedom, white for innocence, tenderness and simplicity. But this colour also addresses modernity and contemporary design, because it represents a new beginning and our ability to start from scratch on a blank slate. White light contains all colours, so we see the full presence of light in white. You can rarely find real white tones in nature. ”  (Quote pantone color world 2015)

This years motto of our international hat exhibition for Palma Hat Week 2020, is dedicated to this colour which also has a very special place here in Mallorca.

White in all its shades is a dominant colour, be it in architecture, in art, in design and also in fashion. White is elegant, timeless, it is mediterranean and it forms a wide variety of colours in its interplay with light and shadow.

In addition to cream, ivory, beige, coconut, floral white, mother-of-pearl, alabaster, chiffon, salt, eggshell, cotton, fog-white, polar, there are as many as 50 to 80 different shades of white.

Be inspired by these colourshades, its meanings and the purity of the new beginning they are associtated with. Put all your love and emotions in your hat creations. Go wild or create a minimalistic design, absolutely be yourself!

Whether you are working in an artistically abstract manner, designing a wonderful bridal jewelry or creating a propper summer hat - it is important that all hats and headpieces are wearable and of a high quality craftsmanship!

All materials and hat shapes are allowed, but still pay attention to the weight and balance of the hat! It should, and will be worn!

If you want, you can apply with several creations! This year you can submit up to 5 hats!

New in 2020: 

1. If you already have a hat of which you think it fits our topic perfectly, it is no problem to apply with this hat. It doesn't matter whether the hat is brand new or a little older. Neither for the hat exhibition nor for the hat competition! It is only important that it was made by you. Our curator will also conduct intensive research on Instagram in the upcoming weeks and message Milliners directly,  if she finds their hats suitable for the international Palma Hat Exhibition.

2. Also this year, taking part in the online hat competition is not obligatory. You have a choice of wether you only want to show your hat at the International Palma Hat Exhibition or if you will also take part in the online hat competition. The winner of the online hat competition  will receive a cash prize of € 350,00 and an a gift voucher from "Highland Hat Blocks".

3. As of 2020 the winning hat will remain with atKinsky die Sammlung Kinsky in its private collection where it will be able to be viewed at every annual meeting of the newly formed Palma Hat Week Society. It will also be eligable to be shown in future museum exhibtions through "atKinsky the Kinsky Collection".

4. All participants in Palma Hat Week will receive certificates from its founder, Count Karl Maria Kinsky of Wchinitz and Tettau!

5. We are hosting our very own pop-up store as part of the Palma Hat Fair at the Hotel Saratoga, called the "Hatspiration Store". All milliners & hatters participating in the hat exhibition can offer additional hats in all colours for sale in the "Hatspiration Store" We take a smaller fee of € 25,- per hat to display it and a 10 % comission on a sale. We recommend that the prices of the hats, headpieces, offered at the "Hatspiration Store" only range between € 100,- and € 250,- to increase your chances of selling them to the visitors.

6. COVID-19 has turned the world upsidedown. It is a desaster for the economy and obviously this affects millinary and all events such as exhibitions and hat fairs too. So going forward it is important that incase our event must be cancelled or/and moved on to another date, all your paid registration fees are acounted for as unredeemed until a new date has been found and the event has actually taken place.

7. Our event focuses on local expats from england and germany, so we are not reliant on tourism or traveling bans from neither the peninsula nor other countries. If your hats make it here safe, the event will take place even if you can not personally attend.

8. Palma Hat Week 2020 will allow applications of MASK Designs if they allign with our basic rules. WE want to encourage you to send us your MASK Designs in combination with hats. Watch this video from the host of Palma Hat Week, regarding his vision for the event and the industry in 2020.

Why so many photos why no watermarks and logos? It is for two reasons: The judges need this many images to get a perfect idea of your creation, because it is a photo contest and no logos and watermarks to keep it neutral and fair for everyone. The second reason is, that your hats will be on display with atKinsky die Sammlung Kinskys social media accounts and must therefor be presented in the best way.
