At the beginning of the project, by the end of March 2013, the project will have produced a brochure in English and Maltese. The aim of the brochures is to increase the visibility of the project and to generate interest among the general public. Brochures will be distributed along with Sunday newspapers, and at events, as well as being made available at the offices of the beneficiaries.
The information presented in the brochure will be very general, introducing the project and its aims and actions, as well as making reference to the beneficiaries and the LIFE fund. It will be eye-catching and attractive, and will encourage the reader to refer to the project website for more information, and to sign up to the project’s online mailing list. It will also entice readers to get involved as volunteers for the boat-based surveys.
The brochure will be available in all three languages -English, Maltese and Spanish – online, and printed copies will be available in English and Maltese.
The design and layout will be designed in-house at MEPA, and the project manager will be responsible for the content in English, while the translation to Spanish and Maltese, and printing will be carried out through a subcontracted companies following an assessment of quotations for the translation, and a departmental call for quotations in the case of the printing costs.
