The winners of the art contest were announced on Monday and can be viewed at the top of this article. It was part of the “Iconic Colorado contest.” More than 55,760 votes helped select the new designs.

The new designs are expected to debut in the fall of this year.

ABOUT THE FRONT DESIGN:

Matt Nunez placed first with his Mount Sneffels entry. Nunez is a fifth-generation Coloradan from Colorado Springs, currently living and working in Glenwood Springs. He is proud to come from a long line of family members in military and government service, including his late grandfather, Joe Nunez, who came to Colorado as a child and served in the State legislature representing Douglas County.

Nunez was raised in a military family, spending his childhood abroad and across the U.S., before returning to Colorado after college. He has taken photos since high school and quickly took up landscape photography as his focus after spending summers in the Centennial State while in college.
