MEMBERS OF THE public will have an opportunity to vote for Barbados’ 50th Year of Independence Anniversary Song.

According to a representative of the National Coordinating Committee for the 50th anniversary of Independence, once the competition closes at 4:30 p.m. this Friday, November 13, a panel of judges will begin the selection process for the top two songs.

“Once that task is completed, the public will then have a chance to vote on the eventual winner of the competition. Details on the voting process will be released shortly,” the official added.

The objective of the competition is to produce an official song that celebrates Barbados’ 50th year of Independence under the theme: Pride and Industry – Celebrating 50. It is expected that the song or part thereof will be used in official programming and advertising during the year of celebrations.

It may also be performed at national or public events. The winner will receive a prize of $5 000. (BGIS)
