52 illustrators selected for the exhibition and catalogue. 12 authors selected for the calendar. The winner receives a prize of 2,500 euros and the following year is the protagonist of their own exhibition with a personal catalogue. A prize of 500 euros is awarded to the illustrator most voted by Tapirulan users.
The purpose of the Tapirulan competition is not only to give a money prize, but to set up a beautiful exhibition of illustrations that can attract visitors, both with the section dedicated to the special guest, and with the section dedicated to the selected authors and to the winner of the previous edition.
