Top Regional Music Artists Among Panel To Judge Nevis Song Competition, NTA Extends Deadline For Entry Submission

CHARLESTOWN NEVIS  — Artists and musicians now have until Friday, September 11, 2020, to submit their entry for the Nevis Song Competition.

The contest is open to Nevisians who are 16 years and older, either by birth or descent, and non-nationals who have resided in Nevis for at least 12 months. The winner will receive a cash prize of EC$5,000.00, and have their song professionally mixed and mastered by internationally acclaimed music producer, Drews Crib from Barbados.

The Nevis Tourism Authority (NTA) in consultation with the Culturama Secretariat, extended the previous deadline of July 24 to September 11 to coincide with the island’s Independence Celebrations.

The new deadline gives artists additional time to create and produce a song that best represents the spirit of Nevis. Only solo entries are eligible. The song MUST have a minimum of two verses and two choruses and MUST be 3 ½ – 4 minutes in length.

A top-quality judging panel has been assembled comprised of local, regional and international music producers, songwriters and performers.
