On publication of this third volume being awarded the top prize in the National Book Prize copetition for 2011, under the category for 'Non-Fictional Prose in Maltese or anyother Language', this award registers a recognition by the country's highest authorities of the efforts behind our photographic documentation of Malteseand Gozitan festa celebrations. The National Book Prize award does not only pay tribute to the photographic professionalism of the work presented in book form, but it also reflects on the contants of this series, which mirror the efforts of the many volunteers who dedicate their leisure hours to the enhancement of our festa celebrations to the greater glory of the Almighty and of his Saintly cohort.
Ħadd ma jista' jiċħad li l-festi Maltin huma element importanti tal-identità Maltija. Il-barranin li jżuruna, jgħoxew wara dawn iċ-ċelebrazzjonijiet imlewna u spettakolari, li qajla jaraw bħalhom f'imkejjen oħra madwar id-dinja. Dan il-ktieb jiċċelebra l-ġmiel tal-festi Maltin, billi joffri lill-qarrej rappreżentazzjoni fotografika ta' dak kollu li jagħmel il-festa Maltija. Din id-damma ta' ritratti hi frott il-ħidma ta' fotografu ħabrieki u dilettant kbir tal-festi. Dawn iż-żewġ karatteristiċi ta' Mark Micallef jassiguraw għażla unika ta' ritratti li jiflu kull dettall minn dawn il-festi tagħna, li żgur se jkunu aprezzati minn kull min għandu għal qalbu l-patrimonju ta' pajjiżna. L-għan ewlieni tas-sensiela hu li tgħin lill-qarrej japprezza aktar il-ħidma ta' tant u tant voluntiera li jissagrifikaw sigħat twal mill-ħin liberu tagħhom biex, mhux biss jiggarantixxu l-livell ta' eċċellenza li qed jintlaħaq fil-festi tagħna, iżda fuq kollox biex b'ħidmiethom juru li l'Alla l-imbierek jixraqlu l-aqwa u l-aħjar.

Undoubtedly Maltese festas have evolved into an important element of Malta's identity. Regardless of their creed, tourists visiting Malta are always struck by these multi-faceted rituals, as hardly anywhere else in the world would they have encountered such manifestations. This book celebrates the splendour of Maltese festas, by presenting the reader with an unfolding photographic representation that probes all aspects of the Maltese festa as popularly celebrated across the Maltese islands. This impressive collection of snapshots is the work of an accomplished photographer and festa enthusiast. These two characteristics have ensured a professional choice of focus in catching the best elements for portrayal. Mark Micallef's photographic eye, with its penchant for sharp detail, is indeed truly appreciative of the fascinating details behind the Maltese festa. The aim of this series is to instill in the reader a keener appreciation of the work of the legion of volunteers who sacrifice long hours of their limited free time, not only to guarantee an excellence of festa celebration unrivalled the world over, but also to express their conviction that God Almighty deserves the best that man's genius can ever produce in His honour.
