EUROPA 2010 - 0,50 €
Books for children
The artist selected by P&TLuxembourg to illustrate this theme is Luxembourg artist Muriel Moritz. Born in 1976 in Luxembourg, Muriel Moritz earned in 1999 a diploma in Illustration and Cartooning at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Bruxelles.
Since 1996, she has developed a solid reputation as an illustrator of children’s books, schoolbooks, as well as for her exhibitions.
Muriel Moritz organizes workshops for children at the Luxembourg summer academy (CEPA) and at the Kulturhuef Grevenmacher.
The contest for the best EUROPA stamp is an annual online event and the result is communicated during the plenary Assembly of PostEurop. The first contest took place in 2002.
All official stamps can participate in the contest. Europa postage stamps have a common theme chosen each year by PostEurop.
The participants themselves choose the motif of their postage stamp, which must fit in with the general theme. Each year, the Stamp and Philately Working Group of PostEurop selects the theme of the EUROPA stamps. The theme this year is “Books for children”.
Web surfers are invited to vote for their favourite stamp. Visit the site: www.posteurop.org to participate and vote for the stamps from Luxembourg.
