The Graphic Design Association of America has awarded two design awards to two finalists for their work in graphic design.
In its second year of awards, the association’s annual contest for design winners drew over 2,000 entries and included a $2.5 million prize.
Alicia Lee and Daniel Dominguez won the first prize for the design of a poster for a program sponsored by the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Associated Press reported.
The award goes to the design “to reflect the work of the department,” the agency said in a statement.
“The department has a long history of supporting veterans through its work to keep our country safe, secure, and healthy, and we are grateful for their continued commitment to our nation.
Our award to Alicia Lee and the other two finalists is in recognition of the work they have done to address our nation’s long-standing need for innovative and diverse ideas to enhance our lives, services, and programs.
This is the second year the award has been given out.
Last year, award winners included designer Matt Domingue and graphic designer Matthew Baskin.
