Estonians are creating a unique birthday invitation to celebrate Estonia's centenary Published: 03.01.2018

Until the end of January all Estonian ID-card holders and e-residents can upload their cheerful portrait to participate in the creation of the craziest birthday invitation of all times. The aim of the campaign is to invite people to visit Estonia and participate in country’s centenary celebrations.  

The goal of this civic initiative project is to create an extraordinary birthday invitation together with the people of Estonia. Thus, a special web page has been created that awaits for joyful portraits of Estonians. The uploaded portraits may be seen on the front page of the website.
Uploading an image requires authentication to ensure that all people on the photos are Estonian residents or e-residents. Authentication is possible via ID-card, Smart ID or Mobile ID. The country represented and one word that characterizes the person on the photo must be chosen from the drop-down menu when uploading a photo.

In February 2018, an extremely long online birthday invitation will be created of all the uploaded photos. The birthday invitation begins with an invitation to visit Estonia, followed by portraits of people grouped by counties.

The birthday invitation will be presented to the whole world in its entire length on February 24, 2018, when Estonia celebrates its centenary. Later, the video will be given as a gift to the Estonian National Museum for future generations to see how people looked like when Estonia celebrated its centenary.

Dear Estonian residents and e-residents, don't miss the opportunity to capture yourself in history and upload your joyful portrait today at!

Watch the video to see how the birthday invitation will look like.
