Last year's George Montgomery/NRA Youth Wildlife Art Contest awarded $7,000 in cash prizes to some extremely talented artists in grades 1-12. NRA is now accepting entries for the 2014 contest. The deadline to get to submit entries will be Nov. 3, 2014.

Entered artwork may be of any North American game bird or game animal that is legally hunted or trapped in the United States or Canada, and may be created in any medium the artist chooses. The composition must be original, but photos can be used for reference.

Entries are divided into age-based categories.

Categories include:

Grades 1-3: Category I
Grades 4-6: Category II
Grades 7-9: Category III
Grades 10-12: Category IV

A first, second and third place winner will be selected in each category. The prizes will be $750, $500 and $250 respectively. A $1,000 prize will be awarded for the Best In Show, judged across all categories. Entries are judged on effort, creativity, anatomical accuracy and composition.

For more information on the competition, and to find out where to submit your entries, check out the complete post on NRABlog.com.
