2016 Exhibitions - Malta

Spazju Kreattiv, St James Cavalier, Valletta

9th September to 9th October 2016 - EXHIBITION NOW CLOSED

An exciting retrospective of the Best of Travel Photographer of the Year goes on display in this inspiring venue and will be the first TPOTY exhibition outside the UK.

TPOTY Malta Farsons Foundation

St James Cavalier was originally one of nine such protruding platforms built in the 1500s by the Knights Hospitaller of St John to skirt the fortification walls of Valetta. As part of Malta’s Millenium Project, its interior was renovated and reinterpreted by the renowned Maltese architect Richard England, who has transformed what was a military stronghold into an elegant space designed to provide a venue for cultural exchange and innovative artistic expression while at the same time evoking the building’s history and spirit of place.

Over the years, TPOTY has showcased thousands of beautiful, intriguing, moving and inspirational photographs covering every element of travel and related photographic genres. This retrospective will comprise 80 of the very best images from the past 13 years of Travel Photographer of the Year awards; travel photography at its best featuring images of people and cultures, landscape, wildlife, adventure from around the world.

Malta's first independent brewers - founded in 1928 - Simonds Farsons Cisk Plc., is sponsoring Malta's first ever TPOTY exhibition. This prestigious photography show will be the main CSR cultural contribution for 2016 of the Farsons Foundation. It is expected that this September event will attract thousands of visitors to Valletta's outstanding St James' Cavalier Creativity Centre, the Island's exclusive exhibition venue. This will be the first time that the TPOTY competition show will be staged outside the UK.
