PARKERSBURG, West Virginia — The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources is accepting wildlife paintings for an upcoming 2017 calendar.

DNR Assistant Wildlife Resources Section Chief Scott Warner tells the Parkersburg News and Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1PvEzxo) that the original color paintings may depict popular game and fish species or feature the state's other animals such as snakes, frogs and songbirds.

The paintings will be for the 2017 edition of the West Virginia Wildlife Calendar. The deadline is Feb. 19.

Warner says paintings not chosen in previous years may be resubmitted.

All artists, especially those from West Virginia, are encouraged to submit their work. The DNR says a $100 prize is awarded for each painting chosen, with $500 going to the artist whose work is picked for the cover.
