Submissions sought for Duck Stamp art

Don Quilici

Artists from all across the country have been invited to participate in Nevada’s 2008 Duck Stamp Contest.

The contest, sponsored by the Nevada Waterfowl Association, is open to all artists with an interest in waterfowl regardless of their place of residence.

A full-color rendition of the winning entry will appear on the 2008-09 Nevada Duck Stamp.

Submissions may be completed in any medium, including acrylic, oil, watercolor, scratchboard, pen and ink, and others. Photographs will not be accepted.

Participants are limited to a single entry that is their own creation and may not be copied or duplicated from previously published artwork.

The Nevada Division of Wildlife must receive entries no later than Friday, October 15, 2007.

The designated subject for the contest is the pintail, one of the most widely distributed waterfowl species in the world and among the first to migrate south each fall.

A seven-member panel comprised of two representatives from the Nevada Board of Wildlife Commissioners, and five others appointed by the Nevada Waterfowl Association, will judge the contest entries.

Results will be announced in mid-November during the association’s fund raising event in Fallon.

Contest rules and entry forms are available at art supply stores, at under “Wildlife and Habitat,” and from the NDOW headquarters office in Reno.
