Movimento Turismo del Vino Friuli Venezia Giulia, together with the the Accademia di Belle Arti G.B. Tiepolo in Udine, holds a competition called Spirito di Vino 2018 to award prizes to authors of satirical cartoons focussing on the world of wine and wine culture.
Spirito di Vino is an international Cartoon Competition for artists of satirical cartoons concerning the world and culture of wine, open to cartoonists from all around the world.
Since its first edition, Spirito di Vino has been particularly focussed on young artists, who have always proved very willing to take part in the initiative. Today Movimento Turismo del Vino is still carrying out this project with passion and momentum with the aim of raising awareness, not only among young people but also among wine lovers from all around the world, on the need to drink responsibly.
Cartoonists taking part to the competition are divided in two groups:
• Artists from 18 to 35 years old
• Artists older than 36 years
The satirical cartoons can be drawn manually with any technique, black and white or colour, only in A3 format with 1 cm of external border. Each participant is entitled to only submit 1 work. The works drawn using digital techniques will also be taken into consideration.
The hard copies of the works shall be sent (properly protected) by registered mail, together with a signed copy of the registration form filled in every section, to the following address: Movimento Turismo del Vino Friuli Venezia Giulia - Via del Partidor, 7 – 33100 Udine (Italy).
In addition, the works shall also be uploaded on the contest's website, together with the registration form, in .jpg and high resolution (300 dpi) format.
Movimento Turismo del Vino selected a jury made of great masters of the Italian satire, such as Giorgio Forattini, Alfio Krancic, Emilio Giannelli, Valerio Marini and other leading personalities from the world of cartoons, graphics and food&wine. The jury will assess the capacity of the cartoonists to best interpret the proposed topic showing their manual designing skills, creativity and a precise technique.
The award ceremony will take place during the Friuli DOC festival (traditional early autumn festival with the best of the region’s food, wine and typical products) in Udine (Italy), on September 2018.
During the awarding ceremony, the works selected by the jury for the finals will be put on display in Autumn 2018 in an exhibition held at Villa Manin in Passariano di Codroipo (Ud).
A booklet with the works displayed at the exhibition will be published and one copy will be distributed to each author of the selected works and, upon request, to the authors of the works excluded from the selection. The event will be promoted in the Italian and foreign press. The exhibition could then become itinerant and put on display in other locations to be defined.
There is no entry fees for this competition.
It's free to enter!
