July 13, 2011 -- Voting to determine the winners in award-winning magazine Dressage Today's inaugural Project Centerline Contest is now underway. Project Centerline is a design competition in which dressage enthusiasts submitted their? apparel ideas for the dressage riders of today. Readers can visit http://www.equisearch.com/projectcenterline to vote for their favorite in each of the four design categories: most innovative dressage show apparel, most functional foul weather design, most fun and functional outfit, and most original helmet
Submissions for all four categories have closed, semi-finalists have been chosen, and voting to determine the winners is beginning. The top designs in each of the four categories will be voted on by Dressage Today readers to determine the winner of each category.
"With more than 130 design ideas submitted to the Project Centerline Contest, it was tough choosing the semi-finalists," says Jennifer Mellace, managing editor for Dressage Today. "Each concept offered a variety of color, innovation and comfort, and we're really excited to see who wins this year's contest."
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.
Voting started Friday, July 1, 2011, and ends on Sunday, July 31, 2011. Visit http://www.equisearch.com/projectcenterline to vote for your favorite design.
