SPIRITO DI VINO
On May 28th, day of Cantine Aperte 2017, the 18° edition of the international competition of satirical cartoons concerning the world of wine “Spirito di Vino” (Wine and Wit) has been launched. The competition is organised every year by Movimento Turismo del Vino Friuli Venezia Giulia. The aim of the competition is to collect and select the funniest satirical cartoons concerning the world of wine produced by cartoonists from all around the world.
Since its first edition, Spirito di Vino has been particularly focused on young artists, who have always proved very willing to take part to the initiative. Today Movimento Turismo del Vino is still carrying out this project with passion and momentum with the aim of raising awareness, not only among young people, but also among wine lovers from all around the world, on the need to drink responsibly. As last year, the competition will be made of two groups of cartoonists: the first group from 18 to 35 years old and the second one for artists older than 36 years old.
Spirito di Vino has always been characterised by its international allure as, since its first edition, it has been very well received by artists from Europe, Russia, Latin America, Japan and China. This cultural mix has resulted in a rich variety of viewpoints concerning the fascinating world of wine. Thanks to Spirito di Vino, satirical cartoons become a common ground enabling participants to express their thoughts and ideas.
The satirical cartoons will be assessed by a jury chaired by Alfio Krancic – president of the competition - and Giorgio Forattini – honorary president of the competition - and composed of eminent figures from the field of journalism, satire and graphics such as: Emilio Giannelli (cartoonist), Valerio Marini (cartoonist), Gianluigi Colin (Corriere della Sera art director), Franz Botré and Enzo Rizzo (director and deputy director of the magazine Spirito DiVino), Carlo Cambi (food and wine journalist), Paolo Marchi (food and wine journalist of Identità Golose), Aldo Colonetti (director of Ottagono magazine), Fede & Tinto (Decanter RadioRai radio programme), Francesco Salvi (actor) and Elda Felluga (president Movimento Turismo del Vino FVG).
After August 28th, the jury will meet to select 30 cartoons for the final step. On September 9th 2017, on the backdrop of the food and wine festival Friuli Doc, the three best cartoons of each group will be awarded a selection of wines produced by Movimento Turismo del Vino FVG partner wineries.
To take part to the competition, applicants can send their works of art from May 28th to August 28th 2017 to Movimento Turismo del Vino Friuli Venezia Giulia (Via del Partidor 7 – 33100 Udine – Italy), or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Regulations pdf
