The Jury – formed by the major masters of the Italian design – will select the 20 best graphic works, to be displayed at the Exhibition.

Among the 20 finalists, the Jury will select three winning projects, that will respectively receive €5,000, €3,000 and €2,000awards.

Two other special prizes will be assigned: one to the author of the best Project of car interiors (offered by ADI, the Italian Association of the Industrial Design) and one to the youngest selected designer (offered by Auto & Design Italian magazine).

Other works will be selected for a “non-competing” Section, named “Illustrators”, dedicated to those works that, for their own expressive characteristics, can be considered applicable not only to the automobile world but also to fashion, advertising, animation, etc.
