ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A Minnetonka artist has won Minnesota’s 2013 duck stamp competition.

A northern pintail, painted by David Chapman, will be featured on the 2013 Minnesota Migratory Waterfowl Stamp.

The Department of Natural Resources says Chapman’s winning design was chosen from among 18 entries. He also won the 2005 Minnesota Duck Stamp contest with his painting of a white-winged scoter.

The DNR offers no prizes for the winner except the prestige, and the winner retains the right to reproduce the work.

The $7.50 Duck Stamp is required of all Minnesota waterfowl hunters ages 18 through 64. Stamp sales generate about $700,000 per year for waterfowl habitat enhancement projects.

The DNR is taking entries for the 2013 Pheasant Stamp through Sept. 21.
