Each illustration is recorded and digitized. After the deadline of the competition we will published in tapirulan.it a virtual gallery with all the works. That gallery will remain permanently available on the competition website. Then the meetings of the jury will begin. The jury must choose the 48 illustrations to be displayed in the exhibition. The same illustrations will be published in the exhibition catalog (Ed. Tapirulan) and 12 of these will also be published on the calendar. The jury also choose the winner of the first prize of € 2000.
