Entries Sought for Wisconsin Wildlife Stamp Design Contests
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 05/04/2016

Wisconsin artists will have until July 22 to submit artwork for the 2017 Wild Turkey, Pheasant and Waterfowl Stamp Design Contests. Funds derived from stamp sales contribute to the restoration and management of thousands of acres of important wildlife habitat.

The top three entries for each stamp will be displayed at the Wisconsin State Fair. With contest finalists on display, thousands of visitors will help increase visibility for both the artists and the stamp programs' positive impacts on Wisconsin's wildlife. Visitation during the 11-day State Fair is close to one million people, with around 120,000 visitors to the DNR Park annually.

Those who visit DNR Park will be the first to get a "sneak peek" at design winners for the 2017 Wild Turkey, Pheasant, and Waterfowl Stamps. Department staff will be on hand to discuss the history and accomplishments of each program, as well as the central role that wildlife art has played in Wisconsin's habitat conservation efforts.

All stamp contest applicants should review contest rules carefully to ensure the eligibility of their entries. Artwork must meet technical requirements in order to be properly processed and prepared for judging and possible display at the Wisconsin State Fair.

To receive contest entry deadlines, detailed event information, and the announcement for the winning artwork for 2017, visit dnr.wi.gov and select the email icon near the bottom of the page titled "subscribe for updates for DNR topics."
