The initiative is the most popular Italian competition in Australia.

With every edition, the competition is an even bigger success.

This year, more than 60,000 entries flooded in to the Il Globo headquarters in Leichhardt from all over the country.

The draw took place at the Chevron Hotel and the three winners were: N. Sabatino from Joondanna, WA; V. Macera from Mount Gambier, SA; and P. Aparo from Brunswick, VIC.

The three winners each received a return trip to Italy on one of the luxurious Flotta Lauro ships.
