My Selfie – My Cultural Identity

During the month of May you are invited to visit your favourite Museums in Malta and Gozo,  snap selfies with an artefact of your choice, post it on Facebook and be in the chance of winning some great prizes!

‘My Selfie –My Cultural Identity’ is an initiative organised by ICOM-Malta for the occasion of International Museum Day on 18th May 2014, which this year carries the theme ‘Museum Collections Make Connections’. This project is aimed at raising awareness of the wonderful collections housed in museums across the islands and their connections with the public.

The competition is open to people of all ages and participants are being asked to submit their selfies on a specially-set up Facebook page entitled ‘My Selfie –My Cultural Identity’, and to caption the photo with a simple sentence explaining why the sitter chose that particular museum or artefact.

The competition closes on the 31st May at noon, when the following prizes will be awarded to the selfies with the most ‘likes’.
