In the issue plans of the Slovak postage stamps, the issue dedicated to Easter theme or motif related to this feast or season can be regularly found. The stamps presenting folk customs or the series of stamps with folk-costumes were published in the Iast years files. For this year issue, a competition for the Easter stamp was adverted. Among the 15 participants were experienced creators of stamp graphics and beginning artists as well. Relatively Iarge number of students from academies of art and departments of visual art represented, too.
The 1st place in the competition won Professor Karol Ondreička, the second was placed by Marián Čapka, and Júlia Piačková was on the third place.
This year Easter issue is based on the stamp design placed on the 1st place.
