BO it! Imagining Bologna

The idea

The international illustration competition “BO it!” aims to enhance the city of Bologna through an artistic and creative interpretation of the icons that identify it, such as monuments and other symbols: Bologna described by those who live there, those who imagine it, who discovers it as a tourist and by those who arrive as a migrant.

The Contest

The competition is international and open to everyone of any age; it is possible to participate as an individual or as a group of people. Participants are asked to create an illustration, a graphic interpretation or a decorative motif within or outside (or both) the outline of a monument or icon, provided in an annex to the call, with free technique.

Each year a different shape will be proposed. The outline for the 2019 edition is the Two Towers: the Asinelli and the Garisenda. A qualified jury will select up to 30 works for one or more urban exhibitions, including three winners (one of these will be reserved for people with disabilities and migrants). One of the goals of BO it! is to promote the inclusion of people with disabilities and migrants, by providing them, through training activities and dedicated tools to access the call, the opportunity to give their contribution to an artistic vision of the city of Bologna.

The shape for the 2021 edition is the Porticus of Bologna. It’s an invitation to reinvent the relationship between city and community, sharing the emotions lived during the lockdown, with the hopes and desires for the restart.



Three winning works will be awarded. The prizes are as follows:
1) First Prize “City of Bologna”: € 1,200.00
2) Second Prize “Città dei Portici”: € 600.00
3) Third Prize “Maimeri”: Fine arts articles – supply based on the technique used by the candidate
