The United Nations Postal Administration (UNPA) issued stamps and first day covers on 2 April 2012 in recognition of World Autism Day. The stamps, and the artists who designed them, together raise awareness about this important global cause.
The final selection of the artwork was the result of a worldwide search for talented artists with autism who were eager to share their designs with the United Nations Postal Administration. Head of the UNPA Graphic Design Unit, Ms. Rorie Katz decided to feature artwork of people with autism to educate others of their passion, talents and creativity.
The United Nations Postal Administration thanks all of the artists and their families for submitting a wide range of wonderful designs. The UNPA also thanks the Autism Speaks organization for their help and support with identifying these talented artists.
