il Bosco Stregato 2017 edition

 
**Update: On request  the closing of the competition was extended by one month until 31 May**

Update 2: New Deadline extended until 10 July


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 world, 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.
