TDN's Amanda Crelin One of Two Winners of Breeders' Cup T-Shirt Design Contest


Amanda Crelin's winning T-shirt design

TDN Advertising Designer Amanda Crelin has been selected as one of two winners of the Breeders' Cup T-Shirt Design Contest, a philanthropic art competition that tasked entrants to create original artwork to be printed and sold in support of backstretch communities and other industry stakeholders affected by COVID-19. Crelin, a Belford, NJ resident was chosen along with Alexa Zapp of Lawrence, KS by the judging panel out of five finalists populated from an original pool of 93 entrants.

The two winners will each receive two VIP tickets to the 2020 Breeders' Cup World Championships, scheduled to take place Nov. 6 and 7 at Keeneland. Additionally, their winning designs are now available for purchase on for $25 and will be sold on site at the two-day event in November, with all Breeders' Cup proceeds going to Breeders' Cup Charities, the organization's official charity outreach program, in support of COVID-19 relief efforts.

“It has been extremely rewarding to see the passionate fan response to our first-ever T-Shirt Design Contest, especially given the important cause that the program supports,” said Justin McDonald, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Breeders' Cup. “We were incredibly impressed with our finalists' displays of artistry and are excited to showcase not one, but two designs in our shop this year. We extend our congratulations to the winners and thank all of the talented entrants who took part in this contest.”
