Break out your favorite art supplies for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s 2018 Federal Duck Stamp Contest. Every year, the USFWS holds an art competition to choose the next Federal Duck Stamp design; this year’s winning submission will be featured on the 2019-20 stamp. Entries must depict a live portrayal of one or more of the following five waterfowl species: wood duck, American wigeon, Northern pintail, green-winged teal, and lesser scaup. Artists are also required to portray this year’s theme of “Celebrating Our Waterfowl Hunting Heritage,” and/or include a hunting-related accessory.
The contest will open June 1, and entries must be postmarked no later than midnight August 15. See the full list of rules and download an entry form at www.FWS.gov.
