Tallinja Drawing Competition


The Tallinja Drawing Competition is open to school children in Malta aged between 5 and 10, with the winning entry to be printed on the new Child tallinja cards later this year. In order to participate, children must send their entry through their respective school in order to win some fantastic prizes.

 The winners will be invited to an award ceremony, during which the new design of the tallinja card will be launched, together with a representative from the school, who will receive the 3D Printer on behalf of the school.

Participation is easy: all the children have to do is submit a drawing on an A4 paper with their name, age and address; the name, email address and contact telephone number of their parent or guardian; and the name of their school.

All entries must be submitted to our offices in Mdina Road, Qormi by 2 pm on 9 June 2017.
