Malta opens national monument design contest

The Republic of Malta has launched a design contest for a new national monument

The £84,000 landmark in the capital city of Valletta is expected to be a symbol of national identity for the Mediterranean island which split from the British monarchy in 1974.

The contest organiser, Heritage Malta has called for a ‘cutting-edge, major contemporary art statement’ which will stand for current values and not be fixed in the past.

According to the brief, the monument should also be site-specific and deliver a sensory experience emphasising communal values.

The artistic statement’s type, scale and exact location may be proposed by the applicant.

Submissions may include a model, maximum two A2 boards and a 2-minute video presentation.

Applications to the two-stage open anonymous contest can be in English or Maltese. A non-reimbursable registration fee of £42 is required.

The deadline for entries is 25 April. Shortlisted candidates will be announced on 3 May and a winner will be revealed on 25 May.

All finalists will receive £420 and the winner will be awarded a £10,500 service contract to deliver the high-profile job.
