According to Elle UK, the ANDAM Fashion Award has become a benchmark for fashion professionals, members of the international press and designers.[2] In addition to offering the fellowship winners worldwide visibility and the means to ensure their ongoing development, it gives them a foothold on the official Paris Fashion Week calendar.[3]

For many years the ANDAM competition was devoted to Europeans residing in France, but since 2005 it has been opened to international candidates.[4] This broader scope enables it to reach the level of the two major international fashion awards, like the CFDA, the British Fashion Council Award, … In 2011, ANDAM created a second prize, the First Collection Prize, to increase its contribution to the French fashion industry by offering a €60.000 grant to a French company. In 2012, the ANDAM Fashion Award global donation reached the amount of €290.000[5] and opens the second edition of the First Series, with the € 60 000, L'Express Styles.[1] In 2018, the ANDAM Fashion Award global donation reached the amount of € 430 000 presenting 4 prizes : Grand Prix, Creative Brand Prize, Accessories Prize and Innovation Prize (the Innovation Prize is a new prize dedicated to designers, entrepreneur or start-up, French and international willing to develop their project in France, which offer creative, innovative and technological solutions in the field of fashion design, production and distribution to develop an accountable and transparent Fashion, considering the economic, environmental and social issues).
