Coworth Park will launch a Royal Ascot Hat Competition between April 1 and May 10, 2014.
The winner will receive two complimentary tickets to attend Royal Ascot on Thursday June 19 and a two-night stay for two in a suite at the luxury country house hotel.
If the winner and their guest is located outside of the UK, they will be provided with return flights by British Airways.
Furthermore, the winning design will be made into a a hat created in the couture atelier of the celebrated Milliner Stephen Jones, OBE.
"Coworth Park is the perfect fit for this competition as it is on the doorstep of Royal Ascot where hats are the extraordinary fashion focus," said Jones.
The competition involves designing a lady’s hat reflecting the style of Coworth Park, that is appropriate for Ascot and in compliance with Royal Enclosure guidelines.
Contestants may enter by submitting an A4-sized sketch or mood board showing front, back and side views, fabric suggestions and a 100-word description of their hat design and inspiration.
Entries will be judged by Stephen Jones on originality and individuality and the winner will be announced at this year’s Coworth Park Hat Salon hosted by Jones on Tuesday May 20, 2014, and via Twitter @CoworthParkUK.
