The Waterfowl Stamp Art Committee selected Guy Crittenden’s original art entitled "Colorado Marsh Mallards" as the 2016 Waterfowl stamp. Crittenden’s piece not only earns the grand cash prize of $3,500 but also will be represented on a stamp for both hunters and collectors in 2016.

Artists Richard Clifton and Scott Storm were runners up in the contest.

Colorado Waterfowl Stamp program

Waterfowl hunters 16 years of age and older are required by state law to purchase a state and federal waterfowl stamp, in addition to a small-game license, annually before hunting. The Colorado Waterfowl Stamp program was implemented in 1990 and provides funding to conserve wetlands for waterfowl and other wetland dependent wildlife. The 2016 Colorado Waterfowl Stamp is usually available for purchase by April 1, 2016.
