Last February 2012, ROCS Group, together with the Malta Council for Culture and the Arts, chose to promote a drawing competition on the Carnival Festival Programme.  As was expected, the response was great. With over 100 respondents, this competition was aimed at enhancing the creativity of children – a fun experience for all those participating. The prize for the lucky winner is a complimentary voucher for 2 people inclusive of return flights to Paris and accommodation for 3 nights at a 4 star Disney property courtesy of ROCS travel. All the participants had to do was submit their best drawing of Mickey at Disneyland Paris holding the ROCS Disney Specialists logo. The deadline for submissions was the 5th March 2012. On the 22nd April, the 20 most ‘liked’ facebook images were short listed and presented to the ROCS group staff who voted for the final winning drawing. It was a very difficult decision, but a winner had to be chosen. The final decision was left to an expert art critic appointed by the MCCA.

Indeed, the winning drawing for this competition is the lucky Kay Darmanin Farrell, 9 years of age, who submitted her drawing and was voted as one of the finalists. Her drawing captured the attention of art critic Lisa Gwen, who was asked to choose the final winner. Obviously, a number of factors were taken into consideration amongst which the media acknowledged the ages of the children participating and the creativity involved, the medium and colours used as well as some personal touches, such as the way the ROCS logo is interpreted.

Colin Aquilina, Head Business Development of ROCS group stated “I was impressed with the amount of feedback generated by this competition. All the drawings are wonderful and I can say for a fact that it was a tough challenge choosing one winning drawing. Nevertheless, the important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle and I urge all participants to never give up on what they desire to achieve. Don’t worry, there are many more competitions to come!”
