In the category of stamp art design, the winner is Radka Hudoková from Secondary School of Arts of Ladislav Bielik in Levice. Her colorful illustration of the cake with burning candles symbolizes not only the celebrations connected with the International Children’s Day, but it is also an appropriate motive for a stamp for greeting cards.
