DNR News Release.

         :reporter; DNR News Release.   
 
For Immediate Release:
Aug. 10 2018      
 
  St. Louis Park artist wins trout and salmon stamp contest.

 :popcorn:   ...     
St. Louis Park artist Richard Goodkind has won the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources trout and salmon stamp contest with a painting of a brook trout. The painting was selected by judges from among nine submissions for the annual contest, and will be featured on the 2019 stamp.

 :bow: ..
Goodkind is now a two-time winner of the trout stamp contest, having previously won in 2010. Two entries advanced to the final stage of judging during the contest that happened Aug. 2 at the DNR Central Office in St. Paul. The runner-up in this years contest was Stuart Nelson of Cloquet.

The DNR offers no prizes for the stamp contest winner, but the winning artist retains the right to reproduce the work. The following species will be eligible for the 2020 stamp: rainbow, brown, splake and lake trout, coho, pink, chinook and Atlantic salmon. Brook trout designs will not be eligible for the 2020 stamp.
      
The trout and salmon stamp validation is sold for $10 along with fishing licenses and is required for Minnesota residents age 18 to 64 and non-residents older than age 18 and under age 65 to fish designated trout streams, trout lakes and Lake Superior and when in possession of trout or salmon. For an extra 75 cents, purchasers can receive the validation as well as the pictorial stamp in the mail. It also is sold as a collectible.
Revenue from stamp sales is dedicated to trout and salmon management and habitat work. For more information on trout fishing license requirements, visit mndnr.gov/fishing.

It would be fun to see the other entries, but I don't think those are ever made public.
