DEEP Deputy Commissioner Susan Whalen says state law requires funds generated from the sale of the stamps and prints to be used for the development, management, preservation, conservation, acquisition, purchase and maintenance of waterfowl habitat and wetlands.

The contest is open to all artists, regardless of residence, age or experience. The program first began in the early 1990s.
