Vignetta di StainoMore than 60 artists from all over Italy.

Almost 100 vignettes in competition, facing with humor and creativity the delicate issue of bee decline caused by systemic insecticides.

Italian public is now called to espress its vote, from the 21th to the 31th of August.

Have a look here to the vignettes!

These the results at the closing date, August 14, of the 1st National Vignette Contest "Bees for sustainable agricolture", an initiative by the main Italian beekeepers' organizations - Unaapi, Conapi and Aapi -, with the sponsorship of Slow Food Italia and Greenpeace.

It is true that bees inspire sympathy to many, but the results show much more than this. The success and the quality achieved through the contest demonstrate how young people and citizens are increasingly aware and informed on the issues linked to the environmental sustainability and ask for a change in the current agricultural production patterns.

After public vote, at the beginning of September, a proper Jury, chaired by Staino, a famous italian vignettist, will be called to assign the first three prizes, while the award ceremony will be held at the Tuscany Rural Expo of Florence.
