AJC Peachtree Road Race T-shirt Design Contest
One of the most celebrated aspects of the AJC Peachtree Road Race is the finisher’s T-shirt. Since its inception at the second running of the race in 1971, the T-shirt has been highly coveted by those who complete the race (and in the early years, it was limited to only the top finishers). Since 1995, students, professional designers and amateur creatives have entered the AJC Peachtree Road Race T-shirt Design Contest in hopes of having their artwork be the one that graces the front of the 60,000 shirts. Public voting determines the winning design, which is not revealed until the first finisher crosses the AJC Peachtree Road Race finish line on July 4.
The race itself holds a slightly different meaning and significance for every one of us, but one common thread that runs throughout is the patriotism, tradition and sense of community that it brings to Atlanta on July 4 each year. The T-shirt Design Contest offers an opportunity for entrants to provide a visual representation of their interpretation of the race. The five finalists for 2018 were chosen in early February among all of the design submissions by a panel of judges. While each design is different, they all provide a symbolic tribute to the race.
Public voting to determine the winning design took place on www.AJC.com/peachtree from February 22 until March 26. Limit one vote per day.
