Hi everyone! I’m opening a topic here on the forum so that we can share ideas and events about this year’s World Postcard Day, as we gear up for the big party that will be October 1st!
We want to hear about all your nice ideas and together brainstorm ways in which we can make the day special!
If you’re planning to commemorate the day, or have maybe poked your library or local museum and helped them prepare something (a small exhibition or workshop, for instance), please do share it below — we’ll add it to the Events calendar, and it might also inspire others to do the same.
Let’s turn it into the best day of the year, a global party in celebration of our favourite medium!
The official World Postcard Day postcard for 2021 will be announced this Sunday! We received lots of great submissions in this year’s design contest, so we’re very excited to show it to everyone this weekend.
You can download the design for free from Sunday onwards, and print it in a local printer shop or online service (like Moo or Vistaprint).
I teach in a senior high school and last year about 200 students wrote an official Postcrossing World Postcard Day-card to the children in the Greek refugee camps with some warm words of encouragement. We will do the same again this year; write them on Thursday and send them off in one big envelope the day after on Friday October 1st.
I can’t wait to see its design!
We had about 500 cards printed so students could also take cards to send to whomever they wanted.
I know I said we would announce the result of the contest on Sunday… but we’re ready now, so why not seize the day?
Here’s this year’s official postcard!
We love the design and how Shao-hua conveys the theme “Across the world on a postcard” so beautifully, and can’t wait to have it printed! You can also see the entries that won second and third place on the contest page.
I really love the winner card for this year´s World Postcard Day, it is really cute - so please don’t get me wrong, but am I the only one who wonders that the Eiffel Tower (Paris - France - EUROPE) and the Statue of Liberty (New York - USA - AMERICA) are on the same continent
