Today Matrix announced the April semi-finalists for Matrix Mannequin Mania. In its first month,
more than 2,200 entries, from across the country flooded the mannequinmania.com website and
mail boxes of the Mannequin Mania team. The caliber of talent, passion, and creativity showcased
in each entry made it extremely difficult to narrow it down to just 12 semi-finalists....and here they

In each of the four categories: stylist, salon team, student, Matrix friends & family, three semi-finalists were chosen. Each semi-finalist has been awarded $1,000 and their entry is automatically entered into to the finals. Now it's up to a panel of judges who will select the finalists, in each category, and then it's is up to America to choose the ultimate Matrix Mannequin Masters. The winners will get $25,000 and a day with stylist icon and Matrix Mannequin Mania celebrity judge, Tabatha Coffey.
For the stylists that were not selected as semi-finalists, their entries have automatically been rolled-over into next month's pool of entries. Each month for the remainder of the entry portion of the contest, which ends July, 31, new semi-finalists will be chosen.
