Malta Song for Europe 1992 Edit

The Maltese broadcaster, Public Broadcasting Services (PBS), held a national final, Malta Song for Europe 1992, to select their entry for Malta. The contest was held at the Mediterranean Conference Centre in Valletta on 14 March, hosted by Charles Saliba and Anna Bonanno. Ten songs competed, sung in both Maltese and English. The winner was decided through an expert jury, with only the top three songs announced.

The winner was "Little Child" ("Tfajjel Ckejken"), sung by Mary Spiteri and composed by Georgina Abela and Raymond Mahoney.
