         —     Awards ceremony of Prix Victor Hugo de la Francophonie 2024



For this 6th edition of the Prix Victor Hugo de la Francophonie, more than 75 budding writers were inspired by this year’s theme, based around the vocabulary of sport and its values, as part of the Paris 2024 Games!

The Prix Victor Hugo de la Francophonie was a competition for the best text in French, based on the 10 words of the “Dis-moi dix mots” operation, organised each year by the French Ministries of Culture and Education. Participants were invited to use the following words in their compositions: adrénaline ; aller aux oranges ; champion; collectif ; échappée ; faux départ; hors-jeu ; prouesse ; mental ; s’encorder !


This year’s eighteen winners, twelve prizes and three special mentions for the ‘lycée’ category and two prizes and one special mention for the ‘higher education’ category, received their prizes at a ceremony at the Résidence de France, in the presence of the French Ambassador, Claire LIGNIERES-COUNATHE, the Director of the Institut français du Luxembourg, Maxime Dafri, the co-presidents of the jury, Jean Portante and Ian de Toffoli, and the sponsors of the prize.


This literary production competition is being organised as part of the Mois de la Francophonie by the Institut français du Luxembourg and the French Embassy in Luxembourg, in partnership with the Association Victor Hugo, the Association des Professeurs de Français au Luxembourg, the Luxembourg Embassy in France and with the support of Mansart S.A.
