Recently, Birmingham-headquartered Alexander Shunnarah Trial Attorneys invited the public to design a new look for the firm’s iconic billboards featured across the southeast. Founder and CEO for the national law firm, Alexander Shunnarah, better known as “The Billboard King,” founded the law firm in 2001 and has consistently engaged the public through his ubiquitous, creative, bold and impactful billboard designs since the inception of his law firm. 

 The successful billboard design contest came to a close on Oct. 30, with 276 billboard designs submitted from over 200 applicants ranging in age from 7 to 82. Submissions came from all over the nation. 

While the top three designs will win the prizes outlined in the contest rules, Shunnarah has since decided to send all of the applicants a Shunnarah swag pack as a token of his appreciation for their participation and extremely creative and intuitive designs.

“I am absolutely amazed by the talent and creativity in all of these billboard designs,” said Shunnarah, president and CEO of Alexander Shunnarah Trial Attorneys. “Looking through each of the designs, I was blown away by every applicant’s hard work. I appreciate the time and thought each of the participants put into this design competition.”

The top three winners all followed the contest’s strict rules and guidelines. Additionally, they each created something that was “Big, Bold and Impactful” as the contest rules stated. The three winners are Madison Wilson, Brianna Bryant and Santoria Dunlap. Due to their impressive creativity, Shunnarah has decided to display each design on a billboard this year.

 The first-place winner is Madison Wilson, 16, from Auburn, Alabama. Her design is entitled “State your Claim” as a play on words for personal injury claims and Alexander Shunnarah being the best attorney in the state of Alabama. Wilson also will receive a $1,000 VISA gift card as a first-place prize and her design featured on one of the digital billboards.  

 Brianna Bryant, 25, from Hoover, Alabama, is the second-place winner with her design “Call me AL” focusing on Alexander Shunnarah’s branding while introducing a new and eye-catching font. As the secondplace winner, Bryant has earned a $500 VISA gift card and a Shunnarah swag pack.

 Third-place winner is Santoria Dunlap, 24, from Dothan, Alabama. She wins a $250 VISA gift card, and a Shunnarah Swag pack, for her billboard design titled, “Fight for Justice”.
