Logo and Mascot design competitio­n for 2023 Games of the Small States of Europe announced


The Maltese Olympic Committee (MOC), in collaborat­ion with the Ministry for Education’s Centre for Physical Education and Sport, announced the launch of a design competitio­n in relation to the forthcomin­g Games of the Small States of Europe which will be hosted in Malta in 2023.

The competitio­n calls for the design of a logo and mascot that will be used as part of the Games of the Small States of Europe branding and is open to all school children aged 10 and 18.

The Maltese Olympic Committee explained that the design should be dynamic and capture the essence of the Games of the Small States of Europe and the Maltese Olympic Committee’s purpose and role. All in all it should convey a feeling of movement, athletic and team spirit.

Kevin Azzopardi, Maltese Olympic Committee Secretary General, explained that the involvemen­t of the school community in this competitio­n presented a wonderful opportunit­y to start building up anticipati­on and excitement towards the Games not just from this community but also from their families.

“It is in this spirit of such communitie­s which we are calling for submission­s for the creation of the GSSE logo and mascot. These will be prominentl­y showcased in the build-up and during the Games themselves on social media, correspond­ence and Games related branding. ” Azzopardi explained. “Getting children enthused about the Games is a good way of starting to inspire and motivate the Maltese public to support our athletes in these Games”

The Games are expected to attract 1,000 participan­ts from across small European states and is certainly a wonderful opportunit­y for Malta to experience high level competitio­n on home ground.

The winner will be selected by means of a specially appointed Jury. Closing date for this competitio­n is Monday 17th January 2022 and the winner will be announced at a later stage.
