MADISON - Wisconsin artists have until July 20 to submit artwork for the 2018 Wild Turkey, Pheasant and Waterfowl Stamp design contests.

Funds derived from the sale of these stamps contribute to restoration and management efforts on thousands of acres of important wildlife habitat. Stamp design entries must be received or postmarked by July 20, 2017 in order to be eligible. Judging will take place in a closed session on July 27, 2017.

For rules, entry information, and Reproduction Rights Agreements, search the Department of Natural Resources website, dnr.wi.gov, for keywords "Wildlife Stamps." 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.
