The Oklahoma Waterfowl Stamp Design Competition was designed to ensure quality habitat for the hundreds of thousands of ducks and geese that migrate through the state. The art competition, which began in 1980, features painted portraits of the state’s diverse waterfowl species by the nation’s best artists.
The winning portrait is featured on Oklahoma's waterfowl license and collector's stamp. Funds generated through the sale of the waterfowl license and collector's stamp have helped purchase 11,675 wetland acres in Oklahoma. These funds also help to enhance, create, restore and maintain thousands of additional acres of critical waterfowl habitat. Wetland development units such as Hackberry Flat Wildlife Management Area and Red Slough Wildlife Management Area have benefited from waterfowl license funds.
