DMV offers Nevada 150th license plate photo contest

CARSON CITY - The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles is sponsoring a photography contest and one lucky winner will receive a piece of Nevada history; the license plate that marks Nevada's 150th anniversary.

To enter the contest, snap a photo of any Nevada license plate in a Nevada location and submit it to the DMV. The agency will feature weekly finalists on the DMV Facebook page and other social media outlets.

The one-of-a-kind Nevada sesquicentennial license plate number "NV 0150" will be awarded to the winner on October 30, the day before Nevada Day, 2014.

"We would love to see creative entries that showcase our beautiful state," said DMV Director Troy Dillard.

The contest is open to amateur and professional photographers 18 and older. The Nevada license plate in the photo doesn't have to be on a car, but the winner must register the NV 0150 plate on a vehicle.

Get all the details and the official rules on DMV's website at A portion of the plate fee will go to the Nevada Sesquicentennial Commission, which is sponsoring a series of events commemorating the state's 150th birthday.
