Wednesday, 8 July 2020, 11:10 Last update: about 26 days ago

The National Book Council would like to announce the launch of a media scheme for prospective exhibitors of the Malta Book Festival 2020.

Applicants may send in their application forms by 14 August to secure their place at this year's Malta Book Festival and listing in the official programme. New to this year's edition, applicants may opt to request for a media subsidy, whereby they will receive a refund of the application fee (equal to the value of the type of stand/s opted for) against presentation of receipts of adverts in the local press about their participation in the book festival.


The Malta Book Festival is going to be held between Wednesday 11 and Sunday 15 November at the Mediterranean Conference Centre, Valletta. The application is open to all publishers, book distributors, bookshops and book agencies. NGOs and public entities, whose field of activity involves the publication of literary material or the promotion of literature, are also eligible to apply.

Interested applicants are urged to apply early and submit, along with their application, a detailed list of the events they would like to set up as part of the cultural programme of the Festival. They are respectfully reminded that early applications may be given preference in the programme of events.

The MBF 2020 Application Form, with updated rules, regulations and provisions, can be downloaded here. Please make sure you peruse all terms and conditions before you apply.

Should you have any queries regarding eligibility for participation and more information on the media scheme, please feel free to contact Matthew Borg ([email protected]) or Andrew Ricca ([email protected]). 

Applications should be duly filled in and sent as an email attachment and by post at the address that appears below, by not later than Friday 14 August 2020 at noon (12 pm).
