New congratulatory stamps created as a result of the stamp design competition held in spring 2021. As many as 570 proposals were submitted to the competition, which was jointly organized by Posti, Grafia and Kuvittajat ry. Five winning stamp designs were selected by an expert jury. “In addition to winners, we often find new potential designers for future stamp projects through competitions, and this time was no exception,” says Posti’s Design Manager Tommi Kantola, who acted as the chairman of the jury.
The five winning stamps of the competition are Coffee and Cake by Tuomas Ikonen from Lemi, A Bouquet for You by Anna Kesäniemi from Helsinki, Together by Jenni Tuominen and Jukka Pylväs from Porvoo, Flower Delivery by Noora Katto from Tampere and Just Add Water by Nelli Ahosola from Lappeenranta. Paula Salviander was responsible for the graphic design of the stamps and for assembling the different types of illustrations on the same stamp sheet.
