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 colourful exhibition made up of three sections: the images selected by the jury (usually about 48), the winning illustrations from previous editions, and finally, the works of the special guest illustrator (David McKee for this new edition of the contest). The result is an exhibition of approximately 250 works. Every year we endeavour to add new exhibition venues to the original one, Cremona, Italy which hosts the show between December and January. In the past, the show has been “exported” to Mantova, Ferrara, Parma.
