Vote now on Alaska’s inaugural license plate

The polls are open online through Oct. 31 to determine which of five final license plate designs will be declared Alaska’s Artistic License.

The winning design will be available for purchase from the Alaska Division of Motor Vehicles for four years, after which it will be retired, and a new Artistic License competition will be held.

The competition is a partnership between the Alaska State Council on the Arts, Alaska Department of Motor vehicles and Rep. Jonathan Kreiss-Tomkins, D-Sitka.

“The competition inspired a deep appreciation for Alaska’s unique arts, culture and way of life,” Kreiss-Tomkins said. “All of the submitted designs highlighted the incredible beauty in our day-to-day lives as Alaskans.”

ASCA received 140 design submissions from Alaskans all over the state.

Design finalists were chosen by a panel of celebrity judges. They included First Lady Donna Walker, celebrated Ketchikan artist Ray Troll, Sen. Mia Costello, R-Anchorage, Juneau filmmaker and artist Pat Race, musician and business owner Phillip Blanchett, Iditarod musher Aliy Zirkle, author and Inupiaq speaker Roy Agloinga, and Kreiss-Tomkins.

The winning design will be announced by Nov. 30.
