Junior Duck Stamp Competition
After studying waterfowl anatomy and habitat, students may articulate their newfound knowledge by drawing, painting or sketching a picture of an eligible North American waterfowl species.
The physical size of submitted artwork must be 9″ x 12″ and horizontal. Each image must be a live portrayal of a native North American duck, swan or goose (refer to eligible species list). The entry may be multi-color, black and white, or a single color; it may be rendered in ink, paint, pastel, crayon, or pencil. Techniques may include scratch-board, airbrush, linoleum printing, paper collage, dry brush, crosshatch, pointillism, etc. No photography, weak pencil, or computer-generated art will be accepted.No lettering, words, signatures or initials may appear on the front of the design. Inclusion of such markings will result in disqualification. Design entries must be contestant’s original, hand-drawn creation and may not be traced or copied from published photographs or other artists’ works.
Photographs taken by the student may be used as references in the development of the design. Computers or other mechanical devices may not be used in creating artwork.
Scenes should depict birds in their natural habitat; for example, sea ducks should be shown in ocean areas. Feather colors should be appropriate to the time of the year depicted by the environment. Decoratively designed birds are to receive equal voting consideration as realistic depictions as long as they are anatomically correct according to species depicted. Students should not reproduce other artists’ visual images for the purpose of presenting them as their own creative work.
Only work that is the unique creation of the individual student should be entered into competition.
