She's 30.5 centimetres tall, gold-plated with 24-karat gold and she's as elegant as she is coveted: meet Romy, a statuette named for the world-famous actress Romy Schneider.
Romy is Austria's TV and cinema award, now in its 25th edition.
To celebrate the 25 years of Kurier Romy Awards Austrian post issued a special stamp.
The Romy TV award was created in 1990 by the Austrian newspaper Kurier – or rather their movie reviewer Rudolf John, who also designed the 30.5 cm gilded trophy. It recalls a scene from the movie The Swimming Pool with Alain Delon, when Romy Schneider arranges her dress. The award ceremony is conducted at the Hofburg in Vienna.
