ARF! Festival in collaboration with Regione Lazio and Lazio Innova  has launched the first hackathon of the Cartoon: 40 of the creators, illustrators and creative graphics Under 35 in Rome and Lazio challenged on May 18 at the Lazio Innova headquarters.

The contest, promoted under the Lazio Creativo Regional Program, is dedicated to the theme "Telling Aeneas" through a comic book, drawing, or graphic artwork that young participants develop right during the hackathon. Three hours of "live work sharing" for a true full immersion into concept, design and setting of works under the guidance of a team of highly experienced tutors, professional authors and cartoon school teachers and illustration of Rome.

Young participants will have another five days to complete their work in its final version and deliver it to their tutor. A jury of experts will then select and award the best produced Sunday, May 28 during "ARF! Festival "in the Meeting Room of MACRO Testaccio of Rome.

The winner will go for a voucher of € 1,000 to spend on the Amazon platform.

The best 30 works will also be exhibited from September 2017 at the Lavinium Archaeological Museum in Pratica di Mare, under the exhibition "Racconta Enea", set up and curated by ARF !, which will also publish the exclusive catalog.
