Wildlife artists can submit entries for the 2018 Minnesota Migratory Waterfowl Stamp contest from Monday, Aug. 21, through 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 1. 

The waterfowl stamp validation for hunting is $7.50 and for an extra 75 cents purchasers can receive the pictorial stamp. It also is sold as a collectible. Revenue from stamp sales is dedicated to waterfowl management and habitat work.

The white-winged scoter is the only eligible species for depiction on the 2018 waterfowl stamp.

Artists are prohibited from using any photographic product as part of their finished entries. Winning artists usually issue limited edition prints of the artwork and retain proceeds. Judging will take place Thursday, Sept. 7, at DNR headquarters in St. Paul.

To see more information on stamp contests, guidelines for submitting work, and to sign up to receive regular email updates on the stamp contests, visit the stamps page. Contest guidelines are also available from the DNR Information Center by calling 651-296-6157 or 888-646-6367.
