The Institute of Creative Advertising and Design in Ireland is to celebrate its 50th anniversary this year with a commemorative stamp design.
Designers are being invited to create a stamp, as part of an open competition that will culminate with an exhibition at the General Post Office in Dublin next year.
The ICAD has launched the competition for its 340 members and Irish creatives working overseas in conjunction with the Irish post office, An Post.
The brief will be to create a stamp design around the ICAD’s mission ‘to foster, promote and reward creative excellence’.
The ICAD’s development manager Elaine McDevitt says that the organisation deliberately kept the competition open to ‘keep it as creative as possible’.
A stamp design fee of €1200 (£800) will be awarded to the winning entry, chosen by the Stamp Design Advisory Committee at An Post and representatives from the ICAD.
The closing date for entries is 10 August 2007. For further details, visit www.icad.ie
