VMC launches Battle of the Bands and Installation Art competitions for Kalamayan Festival

Victorias Milling Company (VMC) is calling for participants to join the first-ever Battle of the Bands and Installation Art contests as part of this year's Kalamayan Festival on December 16, 2017 at Victorias City.

With a theme, "Kalamayan Sang Negrense," the installation art is open to all residents of Negros Occidental, whether through an individual or group entry. Perspective of the design must be submitted on or before December 8 via email, after which, a group of jurors will select among the entries the official seven (7) artists who will be given a subsidy of P10,000 to execute their artworks.

All entries must have a minimum dimension of 6 feet in height and 4 feet in width and must withstand extreme weather conditions as these will be displayed at the Victorias Public Plaza for the entire duration of the Kalamayan Festival.

Since the festival is held during the holiday season, Christmas or lighted designs are encouraged for as long as the theme is present. Contest proper will be on December 16 from 9am-4pm.

Meanwhile, for the Battle of the Bands, all participants must be bonafide residents of Victorias City or employees of VMC and its subsidiaries only.

Each band must have a minimum of five (5) to a maximum of 12 members and will be required to render three songs in different genres during the competition under 20 minutes. Sample recordings or videos must be submitted via email on or before December 8 as well.

The Battle of the Bands will be on December 16 at 6pm at the Victorias Public Plaza. Other entertainers and surprise bands from the Visayas will also be performing.

Cash prize of P30,000 awaits the winning band and the winner/s in the installation art competition. Second and third places for both competitions will also go home with P20,000 and P10,000 respectively.
