Local Artist Wins DNR's 2013 Pheasant Stamp Contest

Timothy Turenne's design was chosen from 14 total entries.

Editor's Note: The following is a Minnesota DNR press release.

A painting by Timothy Turenne of Richfield was chosen as the winning design from among 14 entries in the 2013 pheasant habitat stamp contest sponsored by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). 

Five entries advanced to the second stage of judging, from which the five-member panel of judges selected six finalists. Ed Durose of Roseville took second place and Mark Thone of Shakopee took third.

Turenne finished third in the 2011 pheasant stamp competition.

The $7.50 Pheasant Stamp is required of all Minnesota pheasant hunters ages 18 through 64. Stamp sales generate money for habitat enhancement efforts on both public and private lands in Minnesota’s pheasant range.

The DNR offers no prizes for the stamp contest winner, but the winning artist retains the right to reproduce the work, which is usually done as limited edition prints. The 2013 Pheasant Stamp will be available for sale in March 2013.
