2018 Federal duck stamp contest

Scot Storm Wins 2018 Federal Duck Stamp Art Contest

On Sept. 15, a panel of five judges chose an acrylic painting of a wood duck and decoy by Scot Storm as the winner of the 2018 Federal Duck Stamp Contest.

This is the second contest win for Storm, an artist from Freeport, Minn., whose artwork previously appeared on the 2004-2005 stamp. Storm's winning art will grace the 2019-2020 Federal Duck Stamp, which will raise tens of millions of dollars for habitat conservation after it goes on sale in June 2019.

The 2018 Federal Duck Stamp Contest was held at the  Springs Preserve, a municipal cultural and natural resources center in Las Vegas.
