Title: Federal Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp Contest Regulations; Revisions to Artwork Requirements and Administrative Updates and Corrections 

We will revise the regulations governing the annual Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp Contest (also known as the Federal Duck Stamp Contest). Amendments will take effect for the 2016 contest. Historically, each artwork entry has been required to depict species of migratory waterfowl from a list of 5 or fewer identified as eligible each year. For 2016, each artwork entry must depict species of migratory waterfowl from a list of 5 or fewer identified as eligible, as before, and also include an appropriate non-waterfowl migratory bird species in the artwork design. The revisions will also update or correct common names and spelling of species on our list of contest design subjects, as well as hand-delivery, mail, and Internet site information.
