Artists interested in entering their waterfowl artwork in the Annual Connecticut Migratory Bird Conservation Stamp Artistic Competition have until March 15, 2013, to send their entry to the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP). The winning entry will be featured on the 2014 Connecticut Migratory Bird Conservation Stamp. Last year’s inaugural contest was won by wildlife artist Richard Clifton, whose depiction of three wood ducks (attached) was chosen from among 18 entries from artists across the country – from Oregon to Georgia, as well as 11 from Connecticut. Mr. Clifton’s painting now graces the 2013 Connecticut Migratory Bird Conservation Stamp.

Contest Details: Artists are invited to enter an original piece of artwork that depicts a waterfowl species (duck, goose, or brant) that occurs in Connecticut. The contest is open to all artists (including Junior Duck Stamp artists), regardless of residence, age, or experience. Artwork may be in any full-color medium, including acrylic, oil, colored pencil, and watercolor. Images that include a Connecticut scene or landmark are preferred. Entries will be judged on originality, artistic composition, anatomical accuracy, general rendering, and suitability for reproduction.

Entries must be received in person or postmarked on or before March 15, 2013, to be eligible. Entries should be sent to:

CT Department of Energy and Environmental Protection

Attn: Migratory Game Bird Program

391 Route 32

North Franklin, CT 06254

Full contest rules, a list of acceptable waterfowl species, judging criteria, and an official entry certificate are available on the DEEP web site at or by calling the DEEP Wildlife Division’s Franklin office at 860-642-7239.

Reproductions of 2013 Connecticut Duck Stamp Now Available: A limited number of reproductions of Richard Clifton’s winning painting in Connecticut’s inaugural artistic Duck Stamp Contest is now available. Mr. Clifton is a world renowned artist who has previously won the prestigious Federal Duck Stamp Art Contest. Each 12.5” x 17.5” reproduction is signed by the artist, comes matted, and includes two 2013 Connecticut Duck Stamps. The cost is $200 for each reproduction and all proceeds will go towards wetland conservation in Connecticut. If you would like to own a piece of history and contribute to critical wetland conservation efforts, please contact Min Huang of the DEEP Wildlife Division at 860-642-6528 or
