Greater rewards are in store for Barbados’ most talented through the National Independence Festival of Creative Arts (NIFCA).

Chief executive officer of the National Cultural Foundation (NCF) Carol Roberts-Reifer revealed yesterday that prize monies for all of the awards have increased, new award categories were being introduced, and competitors would also be able to gain developmental opportunities.

Deeming the changes as an upgrade to the festival which will take effect from this year, Roberts-Reifer said the team was making adjustments based on the pleas of the general public and past NIFCA participants.

“It was time to do an assessment of the festival, retain the excellence and take on board comments made by sponsors, the general public and from current and past participants,” she said. (SB)
