We consider integral functionals of the Calculus of Variations where the energy density is a continuous function with p-growth, p > 1, uniformly convex at infinity with respect to the gradient variable. We prove that local minimizers are a-H÷lder continuous for all a < 1.

Keywords: local minimizer, regularity, nonconvex functional.
