After receiving a record number of over 80 art submissions across Malta & Gozo and having 20 finalists handpicked by an international judging panel, The Sovereign Art Foundation has finally revealed its 2021 prize winners!

Despite not being able to showcase the art pieces in public due to government restrictions, an online exhibition via Facebook and their website allowed the public to vote for their favourite works, with ‘Me, Myself and I’ by Ylenia Schembri from The Malta Visual and Performing Arts School and ‘Pensive Mood’ by Rana Sanugha from Maria Regina College emerging as winners.

The winners will represent Malta in the SAF Global Student Prize 2022 and have not only received a monetary prize of their own but secured a cool €2000 and €1000 respectively for the development of their art departments.

We are so proud to announce the first Judges Prize Winner of 2021… 𝗬𝗹𝗲𝗻𝗶𝗮 𝗦𝗰𝗵𝗲𝗺𝗯𝗿𝗶 for her work 𝘔𝘦, 𝘔𝘺𝘴𝘦𝘭𝘧 𝘢𝘯𝘥…

Cash-for-passport scheme reveals residency loophole in Malta

Cash-for-passport scheme reveals residency loophole in Malta
Apr 22 2021 Share

Unrestricted access to the EU via a Maltese cash-for-passport scheme has been granted to rich foreigner. The leak from a passport brokerage has revealed the information, also adding that the individuals involved need only spend less than three weeks in Malta. Thousands of emails’ caches from Henley and Partners gave a glimpse into how the ‘golden passport’ schemes operate. ‘Golden passport scheme’ refers to the mechanism by which countries sell citizenship to wealthy foreigners.

The applicants simply created a pretence that they were Maltese ‘residents’ for a full year by renting apartments and leaving them empty. Some customers allegedly paid more than €1 million under the scheme, successfully claiming they had a genuine link to Malta. The European Commission was alarmed by these disclosures, with the initial steps of potential proceedings against Malta being put into effect.

Deputy Prime Minister and Health Minister Chris Fearne has confirmed that, following recommendations by the European Medicines Agency (EMA), the Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be administered in Malta. This brings the total of vaccine brands used in Malta to 4, but unlike Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca, this vaccine only requires one jab.

The vaccine was briefly halted after blood clot concerns surfaced, making it the second vaccine to get these rumours surrounding it following AstraZeneca. AstraZeneca however received a lawsuit from various EU countries, including Malta, for failing to provide the agreed amount of vaccines.
