Finally, the news we’ve been eagerly waiting to share is here: drumroll please… We are thrilled to invite you to the opening of the exhibition for the third edition of BOit! International Illustration Contest. We really want to emphasize this: it’s an exhibition you absolutely shouldn’t miss!
Get ready to embark on a journey – a very eco-friendly one, powered by your imagination! – that will take you far away. The jury and we had the opportunity to see artworks from all around the world, and out of the 1200 entries, we’ve selected 30! Now, we want to share this extraordinary journey with all of you, touching upon themes of environmental and climate awareness through diverse and meaningful perspectives. We’re so pleased with the number of submissions we’ve received!
This number certainly means a lot to us, but what has truly struck us deeply is the fact that so many artists have decided to participate, contributing to the global conversation about the future of the environment and climate change.
And now, here are all the details you need to actively take part in this project and join the exhibition!
BOit Third Edition Exhibition: When and Where?
The long-awaited moment is almost here: the opening will take place on Monday, September 11th, at 6:00 PM, at the Covered Square of the Sala Borsa Library in Bologna. On this occasion, the three winners will be publicly announced and awarded in the presence of the Mayor of Bologna, Matteo Lepore, and Elena Di Gioia, Delegate for Culture of the City of Bologna, with an official speech. The exhibition will be held in the Scuderie Hall – we couldn’t have imagined a better place! – and will be open during the library’s public hours, from September 11th to October 1st, 2023.

A Journey Beyond the Walls of Bologna
With the third edition comes another exciting update! The interaction with the public won’t end on October 1st with the Bologna exhibition! Just like in many illustrations, this year we’re also going beyond the borders of the city where the contest originated. The exhibition will embark on a journey through Italy. The first stop will be Palermo, at the Radici Piccolo Museo della Natura, starting from October 7th, 2023. More destinations will follow, and we’ll talk about them in a dedicated article.
Before we conclude this news and bid you farewell in person at the exhibition, we want to thank all of you for your support! It’s precisely what drives us to give our best in everything we do!
