Tapirulan Cultural Association has recently opened registration for their 11th Illustrators Contest – SOS – and is currently accepting work for 2016.
Any artist from any part of the world can enroll by sending a single illustration of square format, made in any technique.
The first prize, awarded by the competition jury, is 2,000 Euro and an invitation for a solo exhibition show in the Tapirulan gallery. Another prize of 500 Euro will also be awarded by public online voting.
All selected authors will have their work exhibited in Italy, in Cremona, from 28 November 2015 to 31 January 2016 and then in Genova-Nervi between March and June 2016. Twelve (12) of the selected authors will have their work included in the Tapirulan calendar 2016.
The purpose of the Tapirulan contest is not only to award an illustrator, but also to produce an exciting show, attract visitors and focus public attention on illustration as a profession. A rich and colorful exhibition made up of three sections: the images selected by the jury (usually about 40), the winning illustrations from previous editions, and finally, the work of the illustrator who is hosting the current edition, (usually the president of the jury as well). The result is an exhibition of approximately 200 works.
