Hautman Brothers win again!

Wildlife artist Joe Hautman has won the 2007 Federal Duck Stamp art contest with his painting of pintail ducks (see attached).

This is Joe’s third winning entry since 1992. Joe also won in 1992 and 2002 while brothers Bob and Jim won the 1990, 1995, 1997, 1999 and 2001 contests respectively. The Hautman Brothers have won a total of 8 awards in the past 17 years; no easy feat considering winners must sit out the next three competitions.

Called the “Olympics of wildlife art,” Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne announced the winner Saturday at BIG Arts in Sanibel saying Hautman’s art would grace the 2008-2009 Federal Duck Stamp. Joe's design was chosen from among 247 entries by artists from around the country.
