Waterfowl Art Competition

Oregon has had a waterfowl stamp every year since 1984. Since waterfowl validations are now printed directly on hunting licenses, ODFW no longer requires that the actual physical stamp be carried in the field while hunting. However, stamps are still available at no additional charge to hunters who purchased a validation and stamps are available for collectors to purchase for $11.50. Waterfowl stamps and validations raise about $500,000 annually with proceeds benefiting waterfowl management and habitat. ODFW also holds annual contests for the Habitat Conservation stamp and Upland Game Bird stamp.

For the past 20 years, artist Robert Steiner has been under contract to supply the artwork for Oregon’s annual waterfowl stamp. The competition has again been opened to the public.
