The Municipality of Tolentino convenes and organises Biumor 2021 the 31a Biennale Internazionale dell’Umorismo nell’Arte (31st Festival of Humour in Art) – a prize

contest focused on humour in art.
The contest is divided into two sections:
1 – “Premio Internazionale Città di Tolentino”  (“City of Tolentino International Award”) – for humorous art themed around “Envy”.

Envy is wishing evil on others.

Envy is when our heart feels sorrow for the achievements of those around us.

Envy is resenting other people’s success.

Envy is a feeling of person-to-person or social discontent that thrives in contemporary society.

Envy comes from the Latin in – adversative – and videre, and translates as to ‘look against’, ‘unfavourably’ or better yet ‘to frown upon’ and refers to an unfailing emotion of human soul that has a timeless quality and cuts across all social groups.

The theme aims at sparking critical thinking about the malevolent side of social relations.
2 – “Premio Luigi Mari” (“Luigi Mari Award”) for caricatures of illustrious figures.

The contest comprises:

a selection of the competing entries by a qualified jury. The artworks so singled out will be exhibited at the venue of the 31a Biennale Internazionale dell’Umorismo nell’Arte, from November 25, 2021 throughout January 30, 2022.
