courtesy Michigan Sec. of State

The State of Michigan’s new license plate featuring the Mackinac Bridge has been named as the world’s best new plate.The Mackinac Bridge Authority made the announcement and congratulated Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson for her selection of the design. The Bridge Authority said it was a “terrific honor” to have the bridge chosen for the state’s new plate and “that the image has now won this prestigious award.”

The recognition was given by the Automobile License Plate Collectors Association who since 1970 has selected a best new license plate yearly. Last year’s contest was open to plates from throughout the world and Michigan’s plate was chosen from among 12 finalists.

The Mackinac Bridge plate was designed by graphic artist Brian Whitfield from the Michigan Department of Transportation. It was unveiled in August 2012 and since then more than 112,000 of the new plates have been sold.
