WHALE TAILSM License Plate Design Contest
The Coastal Commission is launching this contest to find a new image for its specialty license plate, known as the Whale Tail plate. As with the current plate, funds raised from purchase and renewal fees will support marine education, beach enhancement, and coastal trails. The new license plate will most likely be available for purchase in late 2009. (Although the current design will no longer be sold at that point, it may remain on vehicles indefinitely.).
Any artistic media including photography, painting, digital art, or graphic design may be used – the key is that the image area be 11-3/8 inches wide by 5-3/8 inches high and work as the background for a California license plate. A license plate template at 50% scale is included with the guidelines, and an actual size version can be found in the bullet list below. The design must include a whale tail, which may be the central feature or part of a broader California coastal motif. Please refer to the contest guidelines for complete contest rules.
