The World Post Day – 455 years of POLISH POST
Beautiful stamp with sharp-witted design representing age of Polish Post (Poczta Polska) with an oak tree’s trunk with the centuries marked on it - from the sixteenth to the twenty-first. The artist beside this design is Agnieszka Sancewicz.

We hope they did not cut tree that old to make a picture. Beside this concern - absolutely great idea.

There is an award as a prove of the idea brilliance. The Stamp won an award during the 44th International Philatelic Art Awards in Asiago (Italy).

Agnieszka Kłoda-Dębska, deputy director of the Marketing Department at Polish Post, accepted the Grand Prix from the President of the Italian Republic, patron of the competition. 

The prize giving ceremony was held on 6th of July in Asigo, the northern Italy. Prize for Poczta Polska – medal of the President of the Italian Republic, who patronized over the competition, was collected by Deputy Director of Marketing and Philately Office – Agnieszka Kłoda-Dębska
"I am very happy, that issuance commemorating 455th anniversary of Poczta Polska gained recognition of international jury. It proves that although the fact that until 18th of October 1558, when king Zygmunt August established the first connection on the track Cracow – Vienna – Venice, many centuries have passed, our firm still serves as reliable partner. We build that trust also by issuances for our clients, which for over 150 years commemorate the most important events connected with history, culture and tradition. They tell and create history, inspire and educate. They bring Poland closer to the world – said on Sunday Deputy Director of Marketing and Philately. The title of ‘the most beautiful stamp in the world’ is for us a particular award. I consider it a tribute to whole postal society, people who spend a great deal of time and commit themselves to that small and particular works of art."


The title of “The most beautiful stamp in the world” is another award for Poczta Polska in this competition. In previous years it was assigned to edited in 2012 green issuance with bison, that smelled of juniper, in 2009 to issued for Saint Valentine’s Day edition “I love you”, previously to edition commemorating congress of PostEurop Association in Cracow, edition called “Day of the earth in Poland” in 2007 and finally to stamp "You are beautiful Vistula River" in 1982.
