The first prize, carrying with it the publication of the design as an offi cial postage stamp in September 2007, was awarded to Miss Stéphanie Rausch of Ettelbruck by a jury made up of a graphic artist, experts in stamp design and communication, as well as a representative of «Luxembourg and the Grande Region, European Capital of Culture 2007.
