Further information about the entries
All entrants were asked to briefly describe their entry.
Winning entry - Vanuatu
Vanuatu is a small island nation with more than 110 distinctly different cultures in 65 inhabited islands out of 83. Selected from these islands I have attributed my traditional culture way of dressing into promoting the EMS brand. The image signifies accessibility of a modernized service of delivery that has reached out to the far ends of the earth that has limited access to resources such as delivery service.
Joint second place - Latvia
There are hearts that can be conquered by Latvian folk culture. And there are places that can be reached by mail shipments only thanks to EMS Cooperative global network. Here’s to the next twenty years of EMS Cooperative!
Joint second place - Georgia
The idea of the photo is to show how the main postal person (courier) can build connections regardless of scales.
Third place - Viet Nam
The image of EMS postman delivering an e-commerce item shows us the interface between old and new, tradition and modern – Vietnamese culture is still intact among the dynamic Viet Nam economy.

The photograph shows one of our cultural and historical riches, in this case the old Cathedral of Managua, neoclassical work in the centre of the old city. Today it is located right where kilometre 0 of the capital city begins and it is from this zone where the distribution of the EMS begins to be delivered to all national destinations. The idea is to show how postal messaging can become a product that facilitates the exchange of cultures.
