I’m on a bit of a tennis tip at the mo. Something to do with wanting to do a table-tennis shoot (no clue where that one came from) and being invited to the Fred Perry 100th anniversary piss-up celebrations at Wimbledon next month. So this email from the peeps at Ellesse came at just the right time:

Ellesse is marking its 50th anniversary with the design competition CREATE TENNIS ART and with uber cool illustrator and typographer Si Scott as part of the jury. The deadline to enter the competition is May 10th. All you have to do is create a piece of art or design to commemorate the Ellesse 50th anniversary inspired by the brand’s Italian heritage and sporting roots in tennis. You could win €4,500 and be sent to the Ellesse 50th anniversary event this summer in Rome where your work will be on display. The categories for the competition range from fashion and textiles, right through to fine art, sculpture, street art, graphics and digital. More info here.
