HOW TO GO TO MACAU FOR FREE!
MANILA, Philippines – Macau Government Tourist Office–Philippines (MGTO) has launched the Macau Song Writing Competition 2010 for university students in Metro Manila.
Participants, who have to be bona fide students and currently enrolled in any university or college in the National Capital Region, have to compose and write the lyrics to a song about Macau, in any genre, for a chance to visit Asia’s most interesting tourist destination, for free.
Theme of the competition is My Next Travel Destination: Macau. Deadline for submission of entries is 5 p.m. of Sept. 30. Top Filipino composers and musicians will be invited as judges. Competition rules are at http://www.macausongwriting.com.
The competition does not only promise an all-expense paid holiday to this dazzling neighboring city but can also open doors to a career in music. The top two winning compositions will be professionally arranged, sung by a celebrity singer and recorded. The songs may be played on radio to promote Macau and will also be performed during MGTO official dinners and events here in the country.
This first-ever competition taps the rich musical resources of the Filipinos, using their song to bring Macau’s message to the local travelers.
The contest has been registered through the Department of Trade and Industry, per DTI-NCR Permit # 3619 Series of 2010
