Prix Laurence 2022

The Prix Laurence goes Europe

Welcome to the 7th edition of the Prix Laurence, the literary competition for young authors aged 12 to 26, organised by the Municipality of Bettembourg.

As part of its participation in "Esch2022, European Capital of Culture" and its LiteraTour festival, the Municipality of Bettembourg invites all young authors from the Greater Region, the Esch2022 partner city Kaunas (Lithuania) and the partner cities of the Commune of Bettembourg, namely Valpaços (Portugal) and Flaibano (Italy), to participate in this European edition.

As a result, young authors can submit their unpublished literary creations in seven languages to the jury: Luxembourgish, German, French, English, Lithuanian, Portuguese and Italian.

No limits to your creativity

As in previous editions, the organisers do not want to limit the young authors in the topics they write about, nor in the genre of literature.

Participation until 31 October 2021
