ST. PAUL (AP) — The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is now accepting artwork for the 2012 wild turkey stamp contest.

Artists can submit their entries starting Monday and up until Friday, Dec. 30. The focus of the design must be the eastern wild turkey.

The stamp art contest is open only to Minnesota residents and there are no prizes. But winning artists may issue limited edition prints of the artwork and keep the proceeds.

Revenues from stamp sales are dedicated to the development, restoration and preservation of wild turkey habitat in the state.

Complete contest rules are available online or by calling the DNR information center.
