Korea Post held an International Postage Stamp Design Contest under the theme of Energy Conservation and issued special stamps featuring the 4 works that won the grand and gold prizes in the youth and general category. ¡°Green industry¡± by Ng Hio Wai (Macao, China), the grand prize winner in the general category, expresses, through the image of green leaves, not pollutants, rising from the factory chimneys, the message of: ¡°through energy conservation, let¡¯s reduce pollutant emissions¡±. ¡°Riding a bicycle¡± by Kim Eun-jeong (Korea) is the gold prize winner in the general category. Employing the images of the green earth and a wreath made of sprouts, this work expresses the message that the use of bicycles instead of cars can turn the earth we live on into a beautiful environment surrounded with green forests and flowers, which will in turn keep us healthy.
