Gaithersburg, MD, April 01, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Award-winning magazine Dressage Today has begun its first ever Project Centerline Contest, a design competition in which dressage enthusiasts submit their innovative apparel ideas for the dressage riders of today. The winning designs will be awarded prizes and publicized throughout the dressage community, including at 2011 Dressage at Devon.
Designers are encouraged to submit their ideas in any of the four categories: most innovative dressage show apparel, most functional foul weather design, most fun and functional outfit, and most original helmet. The winning designs will be featured in the October 2011 issue of Dressage Today, online at EquiSearch.com and DressageToday.com, and displayed as life-size cutouts at the 2011 Dressage at Devon. Prizes include Charles Owen helmets, a pair of custom-made Kerrits breeches and more.
Dressage Today encourages all dressage enthusiasts to create and submit designs, whether in the form of descriptions or sketches. “Project Centerline was conceived to give folks a chance to design their ‘ideal’ dressage outfit, be it realistic or over-the-top,” says Jennifer Mellace, managing editor for Dressage Today. “We planned this contest so our readers could have fun. Everything we receive, even written descriptions without a drawing, will be accepted—we just can’t wait to see all the creative ideas that come in.”
To enter, designer hopefuls can go to www.equisearch.com/projectcenterline to fill out the entry form and submit their description and/or sketch. Designs also can be submitted by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to Dressage Today, Project Centerline, 656 Quince Orchard Rd, Suite 600, Gaithersburg, MD 20878.
