Media.Link Communications has always sought to present local talent to the rest of the country whilst nevertheless promoting Maltese as a national language and this is something which is done annually through the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza. Heritage is important and when merged with culture, it becomes somewhat more predominant. Local artists have a tendency to gain exposure through local competitions and therefore, the committee behind this particular showcase works hard to make sure that all of the necessary promotion is given. This time round, apart from a photo-shoot, the finalists were subjected to enter the studios of NET Television and record a preview video of their entry in order to make sure that all of the tracks receive web exposure in any country possible through viral website, YouTube.
Our editorial team at escflashmalta.com has been given the opportunity to keep the people posted with all of the latest news coming from both the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza and their flagship programme, Indifest hosted by Ronald Briffa and Christine Haber. Following the first two programmes, we can now bring you the latest tele-voting sheet from the competition which will be featuring the most notable names in the industry, those competing in the Established Category.

The tele-voting in this category will ultimately result in a separate award. The current standings are as follows;
The votes for the Teenage Category will somewhat prove to be more important noting that the three (3) finalists that will be making it through to the final night of the competition set for the 18th September 2012 at The Granaries in Floriana, will be relying on 40% Tele-Voting with the appointed Jury having a 60% say in the final outcome. The decision to mark a professional marking by a set of musically trained professionals is much more important to make sure that the three that make it to the final stage are the ones who deserve to be there because they prove to be superior to the others. These are the current standings in the tele-voting which will serve as only a 40% indication to the top three (3).
