The winning stamp designs which are included in the exhibit will be used by the Philippine Postal Corporation (PhilPost) in launching the special limited stamps of Rizal @ 150 on June 19, the national hero’s birth anniversary.

Marc Aran Reyes, Deanne Fernandez, and Lex Kempho Lacar won the student category in the contest.The young artists created the stamp designs based on their interpretation of Rizal’s ideals.

Fernandez’s stamp design uses the oft-used black and white drawing of Rizal, along with the cover of Rizal’s first novel “Noli Me Tangere.” An oil lamp, which was typically used as evening light, symbolized enlightenment and reason.

For Reyes, Rizal is seen with a white dove beside him, the dove symbolizing freedom from Spanish rule that the Laguna native wished for the Philippines. The designs of Fernandez and Reyes will be used as stamps while Lacar’s design will be for the cachet of the First Day Cover Envelope that will be issued on June 19.
