In January we reported that Colorado driver’s license will be getting a new look, featuring designs that celebrate the natural beauty of the state. The “Iconic Colorado” contest, launched in August 2020, inspired more than 400 entries by over 100 talented Colorado artists. Three finalists were selected by a committee that included DMV administrators, artists and Colorado Governor Polis. When citizens were invited to vote on the top three designs, more than 55,000 Coloradans cast their votes. The winning designs, by photographers Matt Nunez and Gabriel Dupon, have been announced.
Winning Front side design:
This winning entry by Matt Nunez features Mount Sneffels. Nunez is a fifth-generation Coloradan who is “passionate about building more vibrant Colorado communities while showcasing them through photographs.”
Winning Back side design:
This winning entry by Gabriel Dupon is of Sprague Lake. Dupon is a Colorado native who runs a photography business.
Nunez and Dupon will each receive a $500 grant from Colorado Creative Industries, a division of Colorado’s Office of Economic Development and International Trade, which helped the DMV promote the contest.
The new credentials featuring these designs are expected to roll out in the fall of 2021.
