**Update: On request  the closing of the competition was extended by one month until 30 April**

**New update: always following kind requests,was added section " Published" **

Alice in Wonderland is the new competition that our association proposes. The project was created in 2015 on the occasion of the 150 years since the first publication of the book "Alice in Wonderland".
The union between the fantasy tale, the magical and mysterious world of ex libris and Enchanted Wood seemed the perfect setting to launch a new competition for unpublished exlibris. Alice is more than ever a various iconographic theme that offers many interpretative hints. It will be interesting to see ho it will be graphically represented by all participants. “The Enchanted Wood” is not only art and culture, but is also the defense and protection of the territory. Borders do not exist so, from the tops of the mountains to the valley it needs everyone help to keep on living!
Everything perishes, but not the richness of the forest in all its forms : flora,fauna,landscape,environmental resource,tourism and magic of Ex Libris.
