George Hamori, 35-year-old Tel Aviv artist, was declared today the winner of a $500 prize in an international competition for a postage stamp design featuring the emblem of the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization. The UNESCO postage stamp design contest was conducted by the United Nations Postal Administration.
Hamori was born and educated in Budapest, and spent four years in concentration camps during World War II. He emigrated to Israel after the war.
Hamori’s design for the stamp depicts the UNESCO emblem surrounded by a border in which the words “United Nations” appear in the five official languages of the UN.
