Wetpixel is proud to announce Nicholas Samaras as the winner of the 2010 Raja Ampat Entrance Tag Design Contest. Nicholas' breathtaking tag design features a stylized illustration of a manta ray.

Nicholas explains, "The concept of this tag emanated from Indonesian Culture designs. Inspiration came from the geometric and circular designs in body and face traditional Indonesian tattoos. The font is also based in the traditional Indonesian hand, writing-adjusted in 'Latin' characters." He selected the manta ray as a subject because it is "so full of grace and beauty that it could be a 'pattern of behaviour' for visitors in Raja Ampat protected area."
