Help us out! What should be depicted on the 2022 stamps?

Eesti Post once again invites everyone to make suggestions for the coverage of Estonian state life, history, culture, and other important events and topics on the 2022 postage stamps. Suggestions can be submitted until the end of September.

This year, we have dedicated stamps to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Estonian Ornithological Society, Statistics Estonia, and the Järvselja Training and Experimental Forest District. We will also launch stamps for the Estonian Football Association 100, the Estonian Civil Aviation 100, the Estonian Association of the Blind 100, and the First Film Screening 125. Among others, the cornflower, the Letipea Lighthouse, and the World Congress of Finno-Ugric Peoples have been depicted on the stamps.

When submitting a suggestion, state the name of the event or theme, describe the event or theme in more detail, and explain its significance. Pursuant to the rules of the Universal Postal Union (UPU), the theme and design of a postage stamp must be closely related with the cultural identity of the issuing country, help spread culture and peace, be free of politics, and must not be offensive towards a person or a country.

When it comes to anniversaries or events, stamps usually celebrate major milestones such as 100, 125, 150, etc. Stamps of living persons are normally issued only in case of presidents and Olympic medalists. Generally, stamps are not issued for businesses (the Minu Mark service is available for this purpose).

Suggestions for 2022 stamps can be submitted until the end of September 2021. The Eesti Post emission committee will make the selection from the received suggestions at the latest by the end of October.

The suggestions must be submitted to the emission committee of AS Eesti Post via the online form on the website of Omniva.

The stamps published this year can be viewed in the Omniva e-store.
