Last Friday we wrapped up the voting in the DNA 11/COLOURlovers palette contest. The goal was to get the COLOURlovers community to help us create five new palettes for our DNA Portraits that would become part of our permanent collection.

After receiving over 6000 entries, we finally have our one winner and four finalists.

You can check out the winning palettes in the gallery below.

The winner will receive a 24×36″ DNA Portrait featuring their winning palette and their colours now become a permanent part of the DNA 11 collection. The finalists all receive $250 DNA 11 gift vouchers and their colors will also join our collection.

We were completely overwhelmed by the response to this contest and would like to thank everyone for making it such a success. Our community is the most creative and design-focused in the world and contests such as this and initiative such as DNA 11 Labs prove it.

DNA 11 has partnered up with the creative community at COLOURlovers in an effort to expand our current color palette choices. Get creative, get inspired and get going!

Starting today, the COLOURlovers members will be able to create their own original DNA portrait color combinations online. The community will choose ten finalists who will then square off to see which five will be chosen to become a permanent part of the DNA 11 collection.

“Each one of our current 25 color combinations was chosen with a specific look in mind. Every color in a DNA Portrait must work well together,” said Melissa Edwards, lead designer. “That’s the kind of attention to detail we’re looking for in this contest.”

The contest will be open and accept entries for the first phase from Thursday, October 20th through Thursday, October 27th, 2011.

1st Place: Your very own, palette-customized, 24 x 36” DNA Portrait, plus we add your winning palette to our line of color options for personalized DNA art.

Runners Up (4): A $250 DNA 11 Gift Certificate and your palette will also be added to the DNA 11 color collection.
