2005 Wild Turkey stamp contest opens Jan. 5 (12/28/2003)
The entry dates for the contest to select the 2005 Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) wild turkey stamp have been announced. Contest entries will be accepted beginning Monday, Jan. 5, 2004, and must be received no later than 4 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 15, 2004, at the DNR Wildlife Division office, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul.

Revenues from stamp sales are dedicated to the development, restoration, maintenance and preservation of wild turkey habitat in Minnesota.

The stamp art contest is open only to Minnesota residents and offers no prizes. Winning artists, however, usually issue limited edition prints of the artwork and retain the proceeds. A reproduction rights agreement, granting the DNR the right to use the design for the stamp image and other purposes, must be signed and submitted with the design to be considered eligible. The eastern wild turkey (Meleagris gallopavo silvestris) must be the primary focus of the design.

The contest will have a judging panel consisting of members with expertise in art, ornithology, hunting, conservation and/or printing. Judging will take place 6 p.m., Friday, Jan. 16, at the Best Western Thunderbird Hotel, 2201 E. 78th St., Bloomington.

For contest criteria and information, write: Minnesota DNR Information Center,

500 Lafayette Rd., St. Paul, MN 55155-4040. The information is also available by calling the DNR Information Center at (651) 296-6157 in the Twin Cities metro area or by calling toll free

1-888-MINNDNR (646-6367).
