Media Advisory: Gov. Polis to reveal Iconic Colorado contest winners Monday, March 1 at 4:30 p.m.

LAKEWOOD Friday, Feb. 26 -- More than 55,000 Coloradans voiced their choice for the State’s upcoming Driver License design in the Iconic Colorado contest, and now it’s time to reveal the winning art and the Coloradans who created them.

Join us for a video meeting on Monday, March 1 at 4:30 p.m. as Gov. Polis reveals the winning art for the next Colorado driver license. Please RSVP to Meghan.Tanis@state.co.us

The winning artists will be available for questions following the reveal.

More than 400 entries were submitted by over 100 talented Coloradans, including finalists Matt Nunez, Fred Lord, Jenn Cunningham and Gabriel Dupon.

The winner for each side of the card will receive a $500 grant each, thanks to Colorado Creative Industries, a division of Colorado’s Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT), which partnered with the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to help promote the contest.

The Iconic Colorado contest launched Aug. 17 with the goal of transforming Colorado’s driver licenses into the most beautiful in the world and closed with 407 submissions (280 front-side entries, 127 back-side entries) from 119 entrants.

Three finalists were selected by a committee that included motor vehicle administrators, artists and Gov. Polis. with a final, public vote on the top three designs. Coloradans should visit dmv.colorado.gov/iconic-colorado for more information. New identification credentials are expected to launch in the fall of 2021.
