February 22, 2018 – ATLANTA -- Five Atlanta-area graphic designers are vying for the chance to be on Atlanta’s hottest summer apparel item. Atlanta Track Club and the Atlanta Journal Constitution announced the finalists in the AJC Peachtree Road Race T-Shirt contest today. The public will now have a chance to vote on their favorite design by visiting ajc.com/peachtree. Voting is open through March 26. The winning art will appear on the coveted finisher shirts received by 60,000 runners and walkers at the finish line of the 49th AJC Peachtree Road Race.

This year’s finalists are:

  • Michael Martinez, Austell
  • Bart Sasso, Atlanta
  • Cheryl Totty, Duluth
  • Russ Vann, Atlanta
  • Margo Weitzel, Smyrna

Designs are included in this release.

The five designs were chosen from more than 125 entries by a panel of judges made up of representatives from Atlanta Track Club, the AJC and Mizuno USA, which produces the shirts. Last year’s winner, Kevin Benton, also served as a judge. Coincidentally, two recent finalists were again chosen to be among the top five with Bart Sasso and Cheryl Totty’s designs both advancing to the next round of the competition. This is Sasso’s third consecutive year as a finalist. Totty was a finalist in 2015 and 2016.

“The AJC Peachtree Road Race is a celebration of all things Atlanta,” said Rich Kenah, Atlanta Track Club’s Executive Director. “It is always exciting to see the creative ways Atlanta’s art community captures this 49-year-old Atlanta tradition event in their designs.”

Voting for the 2018 AJC Peachtree Road Race T-Shirt contest is open through March 26 at ajc.com/peachtree. The winner will be revealed at the finish line of the AJC Peachtree Road Race on July 4, 2018. Besides having their design appear on the T-shirt, the winning designer will also receive $1,000 from the AJC. Each of the three runners-up will receive $100 for their efforts.
