U.S. Polo Assn. Celebrates the United States Polo Association's 125th Anniversary With a Global Design Contest

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 02, 2014) - In 2015, the United States Polo Association, the national governing body for the sport of polo in the United States since 1890, will celebrate its 125th anniversary. To mark this special milestone, the U.S. Polo Assn. brand hosted a t-shirt design contest in collaboration with Creative Allies. The contest was a call to action initiative utilizing the Creative Allies platform and database consisting of artists and designers from around the globe. Selected designs were voted on by U.S. Polo Assn. fans, via its social media platforms, such as Facebook and Instagram.

The winning design, created by John Snyder of the US, was inspired by the relationship between polo players and their horses, and incorporates simple, clean, and elegant elements.

This limited edition, exclusive winning t-shirt design will be available globally, at U.S. Polo Assn. retail stores in Spring/Summer 2015, while supplies last.
