Korea Post is holding its annual International Postage Stamp Design Contest until Nov. 26.

The contest has two categories, a general category and one for those born before 1997.

Entrants should submit designs based on one of two themes ― peace and safety. The top two from each category will be made into stamps for general sale, while a total of 25 winners will share prizes worth about 19 million won ($17,000).

Designs should be 15 centimeters by 20 centimeters in either portrait or landscape and submitted through www.stampdesign.kr.

The winners will be announced on Dec. 11.
