Angeles Arts Council, AUF launch Kapampangan songwriting contest

ANGELES CITY — Culture and Arts Council of Angeles (CACA) and the Angeles University Foundation (AUF) Center for Culture and the Arts invite local composers to join the Kapampangan Pop Song Festival 2018.

“The contest seeks to preserve the Kapampangan language in its artistic and creative form while harnessing the talents of Kapampangan songwriters and fostering friendship among different cities and towns of Pampanga,” City Tourism Officer John Montances said.

It is open to all Kapampangan songwriters aged 18 to 40 years old.

Each entry must be an original composition of the contestant and has not been released commercially nor joined other competitions.

“Entries may be in solo or collaboration that is written in Kapampangan with the theme Lugud or love. Only one entry is allowed per songwriter or collaboration of songwriters. This must not exceed four minutes including introduction and extro,” Montances furthered.

Each entry must include a fully accomplished entry form in duplicate with signatures; CD containing song entry in MP3 format; five printed copies of the lyrics; and two copies of 2×2 recent pictures of the composer/s, lyricist/s and the interpreter/s.

Entries must be placed in a long brown envelope and submitted to either the CACA Office located at the second floor of the Angeles City Library and Information Center or AUF Center for Culture and the Arts on or before October 5.

Entries will be judged based on musicality (melody, tune and musical arrangement) – 40%; lyrics – 40%; and interpretation and overall impact (general appeal, treatment, structure and unity of elements) – 20%.

“A preliminary judging will be held to select the 10 best entries that will compete in the finals,” Montances said.

The Grand Winner takes home Php75,000 plus trophy while second placer gets Php60,000 and third placer has Php50,000. Other finalists will each receive a consolation prize of Php10,000.
