The AELTC along with ESPN sponsored the recent contest that offered tennis fans in North and South America the chance to submit their own design for this year's official commemorative poster.

A panel of judges that included ESPN tennis analysts and former Wimbledon champions Chris Evert and John McEnroe selected the winning entry.

David Bartholow of Los Angeles was chosen the winner for his design.

“The poster is inspired by the London summer light, the mystique of Wimbledon, and the hues and geometry of Centre Court," Bartholow said. "The piece is informed by an appreciation for independent British graphic design and, more personally, lifelong dreams of visiting the All England Club.”

"I liked this poster because it was clean, abstract. Less is more. I like the colors, simplicity and the class," Evert said about the winning design.

"This poster got my vote because it was traditional but also bold and with the times," McEnroe said.

The official tournament poster has been part of Wimbledon since 1894. Bartholow receives an-all expenses paid trip to this year's event.
