CHRISMAS LIGHT COMPÉTITIONTo boost the creativity of local residents and encourage them to take part in the magic of Christmas, the Tourist Office is launching a Christmas decoration competition open to private individuals.
Make Saint-Martin shine with a thousand lights: that's the challenge set by the Tourist Office for the end-of-year festivities. "It was a project close to my heart," says Aïda Weinum, Director of the Tourist Office. "When I was a child, I used to go out with my family to see the Christmas decorations in the different districts of the island. I was in awe of the illuminated houses. Over the years, we've lost that tradition, and it's time to recapture that Christmas spirit."
The competition, for which entries are open from September 1 to midday on November 24, is open to all residents of the French part of the island, and to private individuals only. Three prizes will be awarded in two categories: house or apartment and boat. A five-person jury will be in charge of the competition. There will also be a "special tradition" prize and the "public's favorite" award. Candidates will be judged between November 24 and December 5. "This project will boost the island's economy, and be a real eye-catcher for tourists and locals alike", confided Grégoire Duhmel, in charge of the project. Entries will be judged on a number of criteria, including appearance, layout, use of colors and shapes, variety, sound and light, originality, and welcome.
Entries until September 24, 2023
