United Taxidermists of New York (UTNY) is the official taxidermy association of New York State.

UTNY is a network of taxidermists, from youths to masters, who gather once each year in the great state of New York.

The organization brings together this talented group of artists for its annual convention and competition that features educational seminars, one-on-one feedback from renowned judges, special awards, a family banquet, and a vendor and sponsor fair.
