An international jury will select 55 cartoons that will be exhibited in the Cloister of the Monastery of St. Benedetto in Conversano (BA-Italy) - seat of the Foundation - and published in a printed catalogue. 

The three best cartoons selected by the Jury will receive the following prizes: 
  • 1st prize : € 700,00
  • 2nd prize : € 500,00
  • 3rd prize : € 300,00 
The top 10 cartoons will also be published as postcards. The awards ceremony will take place in Conversano, on Saturday 26 September, for the exhibition and the opening of the 16th edition of the European festival Lector In Fabula.
