17th Tapirulan Illustrators Contest

July 16, 2021

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.

This year's theme is STOP.

You may submit only one illustration. Any medium and technique are allowed. Each work must be square-shaped (not smaller than 25×25 centimetres and not bigger than 40×40 centimetres). In case of a digital image, it should be 31×31 centimetres (300 dpi – JPG format – best quality).

Entry fee is 15 EUR (approx. 17 USD).


Open worldwide to anyone. There is no age limit, however underage candidates need parents' authorization.


48 authors selected for the exhibition and catalogue. 12 authors selected for the calendar. The winner receives a prize of 2,500 EUR (approx. 2,958 USD) and the following year is the protagonist of his own exhibition with personal catalogue.
