The quality of entries for the Best New National ID Card were sufficiently high to merit two awards being made.
The second award went to the Service of Technological Security of State Documents under the Ministry of Finance for the new Lithuanian eID card.
What made the card stand out was not only the elegant design, which combines traditional national symbols with modern security features, but also the multi-colour image of a famous historic castle when viewed under UV light.
The polycarbonate-based eID card is secured by KINEGRAM ZERO.ZERO Combi elements that provide changing colours when viewed at different angles, and varying degrees of metallization. The card also makes increased use of special embossing and engraving techniques.
