The Jamaica Cultural Development Commission JCDC is now accepting entries for the Festival Song Competition.

Deadline for entries is Friday, March 31.

Acting Executive Director of the JCDC, Marjorie Leyden-Kirton, is appealing to Jamaicans to submit their entries early.

Mrs. Leyden-Kirton explained that the song submitted must be a new and original one that is reflective of the spirit of the Jamaican people.

The song provides a musical backdrop for the annual celebration of Jamaica’s Emancipation and Independence and should stir a feeling of celebration and be about Jamaica or Jamaican Culture.

The competition, which began in 1966, is a showground for aspiring artistes, songwriters, and producers to showcase their talents, and aims to identify a new and original song that is reflective of the spirit of the Jamaican people
