The 9th edition of the International Costume Satire Competition “Caneva Ride” Toni Zampol has ended. The theme of the contest was “Occasion makes the man a thief”
It is promoted by Pro Castello di Caneva with the Municipality of Caneva and APS Màcheri di Andreis. The competition is open to all designers of the world, starting at 16 years old this edition also brought very significant numbers: 228 participants, 49 nations represented and 482 works.
The jury consisted of: Walter Leoni Author of Comics – President of the Jury, Davide Perin President APS Pro Castello di Caneva, Mario Zorzetto representing the heirs Toni Zampol, Vincenzo Bottecchia Cultural Operator of Comics and D omenico Florio Fotografo in replacement of
Giancarlo Rupolo, historian sworn from the first edition,
came up missing recently.
Good quality of the works, very focused on a belly interpretation of the theme, from a style point of view we have seen many works in coloring with pastels alongside works with digital or mixed techniques.
In addition to the 3 winners and a group of reported works, a prize has been established in honor of Giancarlo Ruolo that this year was addressed to Italian authors. Here are the award winning pieces.
1 CLASSIFIED – Mehemet Zeber – The occasion makes the man a thief, but rarely does a single robbery make the author a rich man. To accumulate wealth you need perseverance, flair and the imaginative ability to know how to take advantage of every dishonesty opportunity you present yourself, even the most unlikely one, until you transform an impromptu and random act into a habit tidiana, an instinctive reflex, an irresistible impulse.
II CLASSIFIED – Musa Gumus – In a historic moment characterized by the pervasive presence of social media, countless and daily are the opportunities to appropriate other words, ideas, inventions, arguments and opinions, to exhibit and spread splatter iandoles for their own. An intellectual theft of which the victim is often ignored and carried out without realizing that there are people who have read Voltaire, who knows Jim Morrison thoroughly and who knows that Mafalda would never, ever speak in Comic Sans.
RANKED III – Saad Hajo – See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil, warn the three famous wise monkeys of the Japanese tradition parodied in the cartoon. So much wisdom can only be punished by the one that, among the three primates, shows more evident the close kinship bond with human cousins.
GIANCARLO RUPOLO PRIZE – Sergio Tessarolo – The campaign is quiet, the walk is pleasant, the suggested gesture is forgiven: a theft by passerby so legal that it arouses us, instead of blame, an accomplice, benevolent admiration. Instead of condemning, we reward.
The winners have been nominated in Caneva, in the Castello festivities area, on Saturday 9th July at 19.00, throughout the event you will be able to visit the exhibition of the best presented works.
