Artwork Inquiries FAQs

Who do I speak with about submitting artwork to Ducks Unlimited Magazine?

Answer: To inquire about artwork submissions, contact DU's John Hoffman at (901)758-3864, or e-mail us using our Contact Us form.


How do I submit photos to the magazine?

Answer: Ducks Unlimited magazine will consider any artwork depicting waterfowl or waterfowling. The artist should not send any original material. Satisfactory reproduction in the magazine can be achieved from good color transparencies. The greater the number of transparencies that can be submitted and kept on file, the greater the chances are that a particular piece of artwork will fit the magazine's editorial needs. If a piece of artwork is used in Ducks Unlimited magazine, a credit line is included and all inquiries regarding the artwork are forwarded directly to the artist. DU requests that photographers send a SASE to John Hoffman (One Waterfowl Way, Memphis, TN, 38120) with a request for a current photograph wants list.


How does an artist receive consideration for "Artist of the Year" nomination?

Answer: Ducks Unlimited has a national art selection process each year. The artist who submits the most popular waterfowl or waterfowl-related image is selected as the Ducks Unlimited "Artist of the Year." If you are interested in submitting wildlife artwork, contact DU's Product Marketing Manager, Jane Lawson, at jlawson@ducks.org. Samples of your artwork will be reviewed.
