⁠What reasons made you want to be part of our jury? What kind of change do you wish for in the outdoor industry? ⁠

-"I think it's long overdue for a women's Outdoor Gear award. Women scale mountains, climb rocks, and run dirt trails. I hope that this award will be an inspiration for outdoor companies to design more specific women's products."⁠

What industry do you come from and whats your expertise?⁠

-"I am a textile chemist and have worked in textile research. Being a professional climber and climbing instructor I know exactly how important good mountaineering equipment can be in real-life use. As a freelance journalist, I now report on material innovations and I run professional tests in the textile lab and in the field."⁠

When you are outdoors where are you most likely to be found?⁠

-"I love climbing in all forms, you can find me on long sport climbing routes, alpine muli-pitches or BigWalls."⁠

What excites you?⁠

-"When I have a project with many unknowns that gradually turns into a solvable task."⁠

The perfect day....⁠

-"…starts with coffee, involves rock, friends and fun und ends with a night in my campervan."⁠

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
