What will be the postage stamp "Good evening, we are from Ukraine!": Ukrposhta announces the start of popular voting for the best sketch
From June 9 to 15 everyone will be able to choose the best sketch for the postage stamp "Good evening, we are from Ukraine". Voting will take place on the DIYA app and Ukrposhta's social networks: Facebook and Instagram.
The sketch that will collect the most votes will be reproduced by Ukrposhta on the postage stamp already in July. The results of the voting will be announced on June 15.
"This is the first fully popular postage stamp where the theme and sketch will be chosen by Ukrainians. It is also a big responsibility for both Ukrposhta and the author of the sketch to create stamps that convey the realities of military Ukraine. We have received a lot of interesting sketches and soon one of them will be printed on a stamp which will also become symbolic. But regardless of which author's sketch Ukrainians will choose, we have already noted a number of artists who have a very interesting style and whom we plan to turn to in the future to develop sketches of postal products, hopefully already post-war", - commented Igor Smelyansky, General Director of Ukrposhta.
For the final voting the expert council of Ukrposhta selected 5 works of authors - different in content, stylistics and mood. In general, the competition for the best sketch for the postage stamp "Good evening, we are from Ukraine" received more than 1500 works. We remind, that the subject of the next stamp of Ukraine - "Good evening, we are from Ukraine!" was chosen by popular vote. In total about 500 thousand Ukrainians took part in voting.
