In collaboration with Fotoclub Spektral, Philately Liechtenstein carried out a youth photo competition on the theme of “Outdoor Sports” and accepted entries from young people from Liechtenstein, Switzerland and Austria aged up to 21 years. Besides the theme, no requirements were specified regarding the motif, location or type of sport.
The jury was impressed by the sheer number and quality of the photos entered and in an anonymous evaluation procedure awarded first place to Julius Tiefenthaler from Röthis (A) for his photo “Smooth Powder Turn” (value: CHF 0.85). It shows freerider Tao Kreibich, a young man from the Vorarlberg region in Austria, making perfect tracks in the deep snow between the sun and shade. “Winter Storm Windsurfing” (value: CHF 1.00) by Yannick Oberhofer from Vaduz was chosen for the second stamp. His powerful photo was taken on Corsica. Julius Tiefenthaler supplied a further motif for the third special stamp: “Sunset Backflip” (value: CHF 2.00), which again shows Tao Kreibich but this time doing a backward flip against the backdrop of a beautiful sunset.
The special stamps are issued in high-quality silver print on 16-stamp sheetlets.
