Artists looking to have their work featured on a piece of history have until July 15, 2019 to submit artwork for the 2020 Wisconsin wild turkey, pheasant and waterfowl stamp design contests.
The contest is open to anyone 18 years of age or older living in Wisconsin who is a U.S. Citizen or legal permanent resident. Artwork must meet technical requirements to be eligible. Applicants are asked to review contest rules carefully to ensure the eligibility of their entries.
"These contests provide a wonderful opportunity for art and science to come together and promote sound wildlife management," says Jaqi Christopher, assistant upland ecologist with the Wisconsin DNR.
Funds derived from the sale of these stamps contribute to restoration and management efforts on thousands of acres of important wildlife habitat.
The winners for the 2019 contests were Jon Rickaby for Waterfowl, Stephan Senechal for Wild Turkey and Todd Haefner for Pheasant.
