It looks like a brighter outlook for Philippine music as the Filipino Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers Incorporated together with Pioneer one of the top insurance firms in the country launched the FILSCAP Campus Caravan which is a songwriting workshop-talk that aims to guide budding songwriters and musicians in the aspects of songwriting. The tour will include a visit to schools like De Lasalle University in Manila, San Beda College in Alabang, University of Makati and Ateneo de Davao. The workshop will be facilitated by artists and noted veterans from the FILSCAP organization and will also introduce the #MoveOnLang Songwriting Competition. This isn't entirely about the songwriter's lovelife but about the Filipino's esteemed trait of resiliency, like bouncing back from challenges in life. Those who would want to submit their entries can just visit www.moveonlang.ph so they can register and submit their work.
Winners won't be empty handed as they are set to win up to Php 260,000 worth of prizes of which Php 100,000 is the grand prize. All winners will get Pioneer Insurance coverage and one will be judges as the online favorite. Pioneer has been doing this for a long time now as they have been a staunch supporter of the arts. In the past, they have been doing it for the stage plays and literature but now it's going to be the turn of music. Pioneer has also sponsored international concerts and this move to work with local musicians, artists and songwriters definitely came at a better time.
