Wildlife Stamps

Robin Raab of Delavan won first prize for both her 2015 turkey and pheasant stamp entries.

Wisconsin artists will have until July 24 to submit artwork for the 2016 wild turkey, pheasant and waterfowl stamp design contests. Funds derived from the sale of these stamps will contribute to the restoration and management of thousands of acres of important wildlife habitat.

The top three entries for each stamp will be displayed at the Wisconsin State Fair. With contest finalists on display, thousands of visitors will help increase visibility for both the artists and the stamp programs’ positive impacts on Wisconsin’s wildlife. Visitation during the 11-day state fair is close to one million people, with about 120,000 visitors to the DNR Park annually.

Stamp design entries must be received or postmarked by July 24, 2015, in order to be eligible. Judging will take place in a closed session on July 31. Following judging, the top three entries for each stamp will be displayed in the Natural Resources Park at the Wisconsin State Fair and available for public viewing from Aug. 6-16.
