From a Wyoming Game & Fish press release:

The 32nd annual Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s Conservation Stamp Art competition is now underway. It continues to lead the country in state wildlife stamp art competitions in number of entries, prize money and quality of artwork. The winner will receive $3,500 and his/her artwork will be reproduced on approximately 200,000 Conservation Stamps. The original piece of art becomes the property of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department to be placed on permanent public display in the department’s Cheyenne headquarters office.

Conservation stamps originated in 1984 and almost all hunters and anglers in Wyoming must purchase the stamp yearly. Stamps are also purchased by collectors and purchasers of the Wyoming Conservation Stamp limited edition art prints.

2016 subject is the Swift Fox (Vulpes velox).

Applications open January 1 and are due by March 1.
