MADISON, Wis. - Artists looking to have their work featured on a piece of history have until July 15, 2020 to submit artwork for the 2021 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 and applicants are asked to review contest rules carefully to ensure the eligibility of their entries.
"This is a unique opportunity for Wisconsin artists to showcase their artwork statewide while also promoting wildlife management," said Alaina Gerrits, assistant upland ecologist with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
Funds derived from the sale of these stamps contribute to restoration and management efforts on thousands of acres of important wildlife habitat in Wisconsin.
The contest winners for this year's stamp were Robert Metropulos for waterfowl and Brian Kuether for wild turkey and pheasant.
