ATLANTA - The governor is inviting the public to leave their mark on car bumpers across the state in the search for Georgia's new license plate.

The Department of Revenue is hosting the contest. Submissions will be accepted through June 17. The department is scheduled to produce a new Georgia license plate in 2012.

The contest is open to all Georgia citizens or companies authorized to do business in the state. The public will select three semifinalists through an online vote between June 24 and July 8. Multiple design entries are allowed, and the design must promote Georgia as the "Peach State."

Gov. Nathan Deal will announce the winning design on July 15 in a ceremony to include the winner, Revenue Commissioner Douglas MacGinnitie and Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle.
