Maria Corte studied Illustration in the Massana School of Barcelona, where she graduated in 2009. The same year was rewarded by the National Prize INJUVE, which grants the Government of Spain.
Maria designed the cartel of the PAX URBIS International Awards for the edition celebrated in Santander 23/05/2010. The composition combines the most typical elements of the city with those of the peace - the dove taking a branch of olive tree-.
Later, the design of the dove, which "wings" are two hands, has turned into the official symbol of the PAX URBIS Awards, representing the Union and Peace.
