MaltaPost launches a Photography Competition for World Post Day 2016


MaltaPost celebrates World Post Day 2016 by inviting the public to participate in a photography competition with entries to be exhibited at the Malta Postal Museum in Valletta.

Every 9 October, MaltaPost, along with other Posts around the world and the Universal Postal Union (UPU), celebrates World Post Day. This day serves to recognise the work done by the Post and the role it has in people's everyday lives.  As part of the World Post Day celebrations, MaltaPost is launching the ‘Post in Pictures' Creative Photo Competition, which will run on Facebook. The best photos will be awarded with €750 (1st prize) and two €250 vouchers (2nd prize with two runners up) from Avantech, and with prestigious limited edition philatelic items which include The Grandmaster Collection - a collection of 28 pure silver foil stamps as well as a Silver Replica Ingot depicting Mattia Preti respectively.

The various services that are offered by all Posts around the world, including MaltaPost, means that everyone's life is affected in some way or other by the Post. MaltaPost is inviting participants to express their creativity and send photos that in their opinion describe the role of the postal sector in people's and businesses' everyday lives and its contribution to the world's social and economic development.

Interested participants are invited to follow MaltaPost's Facebook page and send their entry by following the instructions on the page. The competition will close on 25 September 2016 and the best photos will be exhibited at the Malta Postal Museum throughout October particularly during the Notte Bianca event.

MaltaPost will upload all entries to the Facebook page and followers will be encouraged to ‘like' their favourite entries. The panel of judges will eventually choose the best 20 entries, to be exhibited at the Malta Postal Museum. Furthermore, the best three photos, will be awarded during a ceremony which will take place close to World Post Day.
