La Plume d'Or

Celebrate the richness of French and Francophone cultures, and showcase your French, during La Plume d'Or competition 

Ready... Set... Write! It's time to get creative in hopes of winning coveted prizes

If you consider yourself somewhat of a wordsmith, you simply can't miss this stimulating opportunity to showcase your French to our international Francophile community.

Now in its 23rd year, La Plume d'Or is a global celebration of the Semaine de la Francophonie and the richness of Francophone cultures, organised by the French Senate for students of Alliance Française of A2 level of higher. 

Taking the form of a two-part paper with a two-hour time limit, participants will first engage in a language exercise component (marked out of 60 by our Sydney teaching staff) before progressing to the written expression component worth 40 points (marked by the Défense de la Langue Française jury).

On 15 June 2024, the winners will be announced. First prize is 1000€ (around $1600) (see DLF for more details) and the 99 runners up will receive a certificate of recognition from the French Senate.
