Winning artists in each contest receive $2,000. Entries can be delivered or shipped to ODFW headquarters between Aug. 31 and Sept. 28, at 4034 Fairview Industrial Drive S.E., Salem, OR 97302.

Habitat Conservation Stamp: Entries must feature a species in its natural habitat from the Oregon Conservation Strategy.
