Malta Chocolate Factory Photography Competition


Images of Malta


What is it?

Malta Chocolate Factory (MCF) is running a competition between now and the 31 March 2019 for budding photographers (amateur and professional) to submit an image which they believe reflects the beauty of Malta.  MCF will be looking for eight images which showcase the varied beauty of Malta to be used in the creation of a special Images of Malta Chocolate Collection Box.


Each image should be square in shape (we will be printing at 8cm x 8cm) with a minimum 300dpi.  It should reflect something about Malta but it up to the photographer to decide what that is.  It can be landscapes, buildings, nature....anything that you think is an awesome picture that anyone looking at it would think “that is Malta”!


MCF will judge the entrants in April and in May 2019 will announce the winners at an awards night where the new product will be unveiled. 


Product Description

  • Malta Chocolate Factory is releasing a range of eight chocolates in a beautiful Maltese package.  It is our intention to help showcase both the beauty of our island as well as the artistry of its resident photographers – both professional and amateur alike.

  • Each chocolate will be individually boxed in their own beautifully design boxed with one of eight winning images from the Images of Malta competition on that box.

  • The entire range of eight winning designs will be sold in an Images of Malta specially designed package which will contain all eight winning boxes.

  • Each individual box in the set will have a short bio of the winning photographer and can also include a photo and/or link to their website or Facebook page. These will be published on the back of the individual box.

  • The entrant retains rights to the image so can also sell prints or similar through their website, Facebook page or any other means, but grants right to MCF to use the image.

  • Each winning photographer will receive a royalty per box sold in the set as well as 5 Images of Malta chocolate collection boxes.

  • The Images of Malta chocolate collection will be sold for a minimum of twelve months through MCF and its retail outlets.
