To celebrate our 70th anniversary, we're supporting the people who will shape our community's future—our youth.


This year, we will be donating over £70,000 to innovative, youth initiatives across our locations in Gibraltar, Malta, Bermuda and Canada. And we're looking to you, our valued community members, to help us decide what those initiatives should be.


The contest is now closed. Stay tuned to learn how to vote for your favourite #Next70 idea!

This contest is open to legal residents of Gibraltar, who complete the online idea submission form. Ideas submitted must support a registered charitable or non-profit organization to be considered.

TIP: If you don’t work for the charity or non-profit organization associated with your idea, you may want to confirm its feasibility before submitting.

Yes. If you have more than one idea, please feel free to submit additional applications.

Ideas must support youth-focused initiatives to be considered. All submissions will be judged based on the following categories: innovation, inspiration, creativity, sustainability, feasibility and impact on youth in the community. Confirming the feasibility of your idea with its associated charity or non-profit organization in advance will also strengthen your entry.

Once the Argus Steering Committee has selected the top ideas, the shortlisted ideas will be featured on social media (Oct 22-Nov 5) where community members can vote for the ideas they think will have the most impact by commenting on the social media post using the #Next70 hashtag.
