Duck stamp designed to be judged

Last Modified: Saturday, October 20, 2012 3:01 PM

BATON ROUGE (AP) — Competing designs for the 2013 Louisiana duck stamp will be judged Wednesday, Oct. 24 at the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries' Waddill Wildlife Refuge and Education Center in Baton Rouge.

Competing paintings will be on display starting at 9 a.m. and judging will begin at 10 a.m. The contest is open to the public.

The Legislature authorized the Louisiana Waterfowl Conservation Stamp program in 1988 to generate revenue for conservation and enhancement of waterfowl populations and habitats.

During the past 22 years, more than $10 million has been generated with about $5 million spent on land acquisition.

The duck stamp contest traditionally has attracted artists from across the country. Judges include waterfowl biologists, artists and art dealers with waterfowl expertise.
