The new Colorado driver's license — available this fall — will feature Mount Sneffels on the front and Rocky Mountain National Park on the back.

The state of play: More than 55,000 people voted on the winning designs, which were unveiled yesterday by Gov. Jared Polis.

By the numbers: The contest featured 407 submissions from 119 artists. A committee that included the governor narrowed the pool to three finalists for the front and back designs.

  • Matt Nunez, a 26-year-old from Glenwood Springs, took the photo for the front. It shows Mount Sneffels with green and tan hillsides in the foreground.
  • Gabriel Dupon, a 19-year-old from Wellington, took the photo for the back. It shows the Continental Divide and Sprague Lake in the foreground.
