    The Italian Cultural Association Tapirulan is proud to announce the thirteenth edition of its International Contest for Illustrators.

    Theme of this year is: CIAO.

    Ciao is a friendly and informal greeting, used mostly in it’s native Italy, but also very common almost all over the world, mainly thanks to the many Italian emigrants who’ve taken it with them. You meet with a ciao, you introduce yourself with a ciao, you say goodbye with a ciao...

    Any work must be square-shaped, not smaller than 25x25 centimetres and not bigger than 40x40 centimetres. If it is put in a frame this should not be thicker than 3 millimetres. In case of a digital image it should be 31x31 centimetres (300 dpi – JPG format – best quality).

    Execution techniques are free.

    Every candidate is allowed to submit only one brand-new work. Neither prize-winning works nor works previously mentioned for merit will be accepted.

    Entry fee is 10 Euro (approx. 11 USD).
