Director of Culture Tamika Boatswain said the participants will be required to record their songs on their mobile devices and send them to to the Department of Public Information (DPI)

Their videos then will be posted to the Department of Public Information and Department of Social Cohesion’s social media platforms for the viewing public to select a winner. The competition will conclude on May 25.

The Director noted that the contest aims to promote the creativity and innovativeness of the participants.

“This competition will cause persons to think outside of the box when recording any of the country’s national songs. We expect that each participant will put their heart into it their rendition because, to win, they definitely need that ‘wow’ factor,” she added.

Additionally, the Minister of Social Cohesion Hon. Dr. George Norton disclosed that the department is also planning to create a collaborative national song track with Guyanese artistes.
