About the Collectible Conservation Stamp Art Contest

Adult Contest

The winning image will be featured on the 2025 collectible conservation stamp. The top five receive a monetary award, including $3,500 for the winner. The winning stamp will be offered as a collectible item, which can be purchased through the Game and Fish Store.

All artwork must be the artist’s original creation and two-dimensional. Photographs, sculptures or other three-dimensional submissions will not be accepted. Entries determined to be biologically inaccurate will be ineligible to win monetary awards, but could earn honorable mention recognition. Entry size is 18-by-24 inches in a horizontal format. Entries can be in color or black and white. The entry fee is $30.

Kids Contest

For the second consecutive year, Wyoming kids in kindergarten through 12th grade can participate. Last year’s contest drew 90 entries. Entries may be submitted by the student’s art teacher or by the student through an online form. If the artwork is teacher-submitted, students and their teachers will win cash prizes for artwork that earns first through third place. Entries can be in color or black and white but must consist of some form of ink, pencil or paint.

Winning and honorable mention entries for both contests will be on display at the Game and Fish’s Cheyenne Headquarters for one month. Game and Fish will announce the winners and honorable mentions of both contests with an online event April 26.
