Postal Services is accepting submissions of artwork from Caymanian artists for possible use in a special Easter stamp issue.
According to Postmaster General Sheena Glasgow, the department is looking for resident Caymanian artists to submit photos of paintings that feature the Easter story. Artists are encouraged to submit a work that depicts any part of the Easter story from the Passover to the Resurrection of Christ. “To participate, artists must be residents of the Island’s for two or more years. When composing their artwork, artists should keep in mind that the final product will be reduced to the size of a postage stamp," she says.
Ms Glasgow explains that the unique issue will contain five stamps and that the Stamp
Advisory Committee will be responsible for judging the artwork and making the final selections.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, 19 January 2004. If chosen, artists will be expected to give the Post Office permission to reproduce their painting as a stamp. Artists may also be asked to submit a slide or CD-ROM of their painting.
Photos of artwork should be addressed to Karen McField at the Philatelic Bureau, Seven
Mile Beach Post Office. For more information contact the bureau at tel: 345-946-4757, fax: 345 949-4113 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
