T-Shirt Contest

Calling All Artists: Will You Be the 2024 Peachtree T-Shirt Design Winner?

Atlanta Track Club is now accepting submissions for the 2024 AJC Peachtree Road Race T-Shirt Contest. Artists have until February 9 to submit up to three designs that could appear on the coveted shirt. Submissions can be made below.

For the first time, the contest features a prize purse of $11,500. In addition to having their artwork displayed on a T-shirt that is prized not only in the moment but over the decades, the winning designer will also take home $5,500 in honor of the Peachtree's 55th running and have their achievement memorialized in a commemorative Atlanta Journal-Constitution front page. The second- and third-place vote-getters will receive $3,500 and $2,500, respectively.

A panel of judges from Atlanta Track Club, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and the Atlanta running and walking community will narrow the hundreds of expected submissions down to five. Artists will be judged on contest rules and requirements that include the number of colors allowed, how well the history of the event is portrayed and how the design will print on technical fabric.

The public will be invited to cast their vote for the finalists throughout March at ajc.com/Peachtree. Following tradition, the winning design won't be revealed until the morning of July 4, after the first race finisher has crossed the line.

The 55th Running of the AJC Peachtree Road Race will be held on Thursday, July 4, 2024, starting at Lenox Square and finishing in Piedmont Park. Guaranteed registration for Atlanta Track Club members opens March 1, with members receiving the lowest price as well as placement in Start Waves A-M. Registration for non-members will open on March 8 and will be on a first-come, first-served basis until the event reaches capacity.
