Call for Salmon Artists
Wednesday, 02 September 2015

The 2015/2016 winning image 'Salmon Tale' by April White.

The Pacific Salmon Foundation is calling for artists to enter artwork in  the 2016/2017 Salmon Conservation Stamp Art Competition.

This year’s competition will be the 28th anniversary of the Salmon Conservation Stamp Art Competition and the winning image will be selected to produce the 2016/2017 stamp.  Fisheries and Oceans Canada issues the Salmon Conservation Stamp, which is purchased and affixed to the license of each tidal water angler who wishes to retain any species of salmon.

Artists are asked to read through the rules and regulations carefully before creating and submitting their artwork.  The Foundation hopes to make it clear that it encourages and welcomes representational images such as First Nations art and that not all entries will include traditional habitat backgrounds.  One rule to note is that the winning artist may not enter the competition for two years following the year that they win the competition. Additionally, the Foundation will be reproducing each painting in “stamp size” for the competition so that they may be judged more accurately for their suitability to become the Salmon Conservation Stamp image. This will require that all images are received for the competition no less than ten days in advance. Please download the entry form and rules and regulations here. 

Entry forms should be returned by mail, fax or e-mail to:
