The Provincial Government of Bohol, in cooperation with the Bohol Sandugo Foundation, Inc., is now cooking specific kinds of entertainment for the upcoming Sandugo Festival in July.
One of these is the Bohol Sandugo Song Festival, which is now on its second year.
Songfest Chair Eddie Orig said that Songfest organizers are now accepting entries and the deadline of submission will be at 12:00 oâ€™clock noon of May 31, 2016.
â€œThis is open to all professional and amateur Boholano songwriters and entry songs must be unpublished original compositions,â€ Orig said during a meeting between the Provincial Government and the Foundation.
He also said that lyrics must be in Boholano or Binisaya and each entry must not exceed four minutes, including intro and extro music.
There will be three categories; namely, the Ballad or Love Song category, Novelty, and Fast Beat.
Fifteen finalists would then be chosen to perform for the Finals Night on July 21, with five entries per category.
The three grand winners will receive P50,000.00 each; while the remaining nine non-winning finalists will have consolation prizes of P10,000.00 each.
Best Interpreter for the Songfest Finals Night will receive P5,000.00.
Orig said that this yearâ€™s Sandugo Songfest is exclusively for Boholanos only.Â (JLV/PGBh/EDCom)
