The winning entries for the 2022 edition of the Delaware Trout Stamp Contest were chosen by a panel of five judges who independently evaluated and scored the contest entries in person as part of COVID-19 safety precautions.

Mr. Bradford received $250 for Best in Show and retains artist’s rights for reproduction and sales of prints of the stamp. Mr. Bradford also took second place with a rainbow trout.
