= QUICK SHOUT OUT =It's a song writing contest!
The National Environment Agency (NEA) will be organising its fourth Eco Music Challenge this year, and is calling for talented and passionate individuals or groups to submit their original music compositions online.
Submission Period: 5 August 2013 - 1 September 2013
Time extended to: 8th September 2013
The Eco Music Challenge is a national environmental song-writing competition to provide a platform for music talents of all ages to express their appreciation and support for the environment through music composition in any of the four main languages.
Developed as part of the Clean and Green Singapore (CGS) initiative, the Eco Music Challenge 2013 aims to inspire Singaporeans to care for and protect the environment through music. The selected winning song will be presented as the official theme song for CGS 2014 later this year.
Finalists Will Be Mentored by Music Professionals.
This year, NEA will also be partnering professional songwriters and music professionals like Dick Lee, Clement Chow, Shimona Kee and others for the mentorship programme where the twelve shortlisted participants will get a chance to undergo a comprehensive mentorship programme. This will include coaching sessions on making music, playing music, sharing music, personal styling, and showmanship.
The artistes and other industry players will lend their expertise during the personalised mentorship sessions to prepare finalists for the Grand Finale performance on 28 September 2013. The Grand Finale will see the shortlisted participants pit their skills against one another, and for the production of their final songs in the fourth Eco Music Album.
Apart from standing to win over $13,000 worth of cash prizes, shortlisted finalists will also have their winning entries compiled into a CD album. NEA will be partnering Warner Music, one of the world’s leading music publishers, to distribute the CD album at local retailers, as well as through their online distribution network. The winning entry will also get the opportunity to produce a music video, which will be widely marketed through various media channels.
