Minnesota -(Ammoland.com)- Wildlife artists can submit entries for the 2016 Minnesota Migratory Waterfowl Stamp from Monday, Aug. 17, through 4 p.m. Friday, Aug. 28.

The waterfowl stamp validation is sold along with hunting licenses and for an extra 75 cents purchasers can receive the pictorial stamp. It is also sold as a collectible for $8.25. Revenue from stamp sales is dedicated to waterfowl management and habitat work.

The American wigeon is the only eligible species for depiction on the 2016 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. 3, at DNR headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road in St. Paul.
