Children’s stamp from Slovakia

The artwork of this postage stamp originates from the national art competition "Month of Children's Creation" conducted by a prestigious Slovak artist, Professor Karol Ondreicka.

The competition's topic is "I will draw a flower. Children's stamp". The national art competition is dedicated to both physically and mentally handicapped children regardless of age. Within twelve years of the competition's existence, which started with the publication of children's magazine Fifík as well as children's Association Turtles, children have painted, drawn, modeled and embroidered nearly 70,000 works of art. They have created four mascots which represented Slovak delegation of sportsmen at the Paralympic Games. The artwork has also decorated the corridors of the Cardiologic Centre in Bratislava, they have been published in many printed media as well as illustrations for a book of original children's tales with the title Little Angel in Tall Grass, adapted by Slovak writers. Fifik magazine has been organizing a children's art jury in the form of the Bratislava Biennial of Illustrations.
