Bosco Stregato 2017 Jungle Book/Disney Word Edition

On the anniversary of 150 years since the birth of the English writer Rudyard Kipling we want to dedicate the new theme to his novel “The Jungle Book” that caught the imagination of many children of yesteryear, and to the Disney word, in homage to Walt Disney for the 50th anniversary of his death. 
In the hope that they continue to make modern people dream, people who live in the computer age. They shall take on the new theme of Ex Libris and Short stories, offering their key reading and their own interpretation.
For those who are not very young, we are sure that the memory of this novels are still alive and exciting. The concept and educational message of the authors has not lost their validity and are still intact and not scratched by time passing relentlessly.

  • For Answering to some frequent questions:

    1) The exlibris must be sent to this adress:

    Associazione Solstizio d’Estate - Festival dei Saperi e dei Sapori Onlus
    Via Lupiano, 7 - 12050 Bosia (CN) - Italy

    2) "The ex Libris should be made payable to the Solstizio d'estate" mean that these artwork have been created for our contest, and the write "soltizio d'estate onlus" on the exlibris will be the unequivocal evidence.

    You can see many example in our gallery section.

    3) The partecipation to the contest is free,

    4) The themes of the competition are: "The Jungle Book" and/or "The Disney Word". Every artist can choose one of these or both.

    We remember that all exlibris sent by e-mail, will not be considered

    For other question, this is the rigth space.
