LDWF announces annual duck stamp competition

LDWF has announced the featured species for the 2025 Louisiana Duck Stamp competition: the black-bellied whistling duck.

To enter, an artist must submit an original, unpublished work of art featuring the duck and its associated habitat. Entries will be accepted from Oct. 14-Oct. 22, with the contest to be held in the Joe L. Herring Louisiana Room at the LDWF Headquarters building, beginning at 10 a.m. on Oct. 23. The public is invited to attend.
A note to artists: There is a requirement that the associated habitat be representative of Louisiana wetlands.
