2015 Conservation Stamp Art Competition Winner
Artist: Kip Richmond, Clayton, North Carolina Species: Sauger (Sander canadensis)
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department's Conservation Stamp Art competition continues to lead the country in state wildlife stamp art competitions in number of entries, prize money and quality of artwork. The winner will be reproduced on approximately 200,000 Conservation Stamps. The original piece of art becomes the property of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department to be placed on permanent public display in the department's Cheyenne headquarters office.
Conservation stamps originated in 1984 and almost all hunters and anglers in Wyoming must purchase the stamp yearly. Stamps are also purchased by collectors and purchasers of the Wyoming Conservation Stamp limited edition art prints.
