We have received an email below from Città del sole and thought we would post about it on our news page. If any of our students are interested in entering their competition, the link to their website is below. It is in Italian, however if you use Google Chrome your browser will translate it for you. I couldn’t seem to get the English flag to work in the top right corner, but you all may have some success with it. Let us know if you enter!


Città del sole, chain of quality toyshops with 64 stores all around in Italy, is pleased to bring to your attention an initiative that you could propose to your students.

We’re looking for a young illustrator for our 13th calendar, a tradition that we bring forward with much pleasure and that, in the last edition, has seen the piece of work of some of the most important children’s illustrators.

Since 2008 we had the idea of launching a competition, and the result was the nice calendar illustrated by Anna Castagnoli. For 2009 the winner was Marco Trevisan; for 2010 David Pintor and Barbara Cantini for 2012 edition. You can see the whole production here:
