The contest is for the design of a fresh and exciting restyling of the VIA Rail uniform for station and on-train employees.

The winning design will be announced and revealed in style to the media, industry and the fashionable attendees at Fashion Week in Toronto, in March 2009 The call-out to designers to compete started November 17, 2008. What's in it for the winner? For starters, $10,000 in VIA Rail travel credits.
