Part of its ongoing “Going by train is responsible” campaign, the contest was launched in mid-May and announced on ZSSK’s Facebook page. The competitors had to come up with a design that blends in with ZSSK’s specially updated, Covid 19-themed logo, featuring two caring hands underneath the original emblem of the state operator.
