After the success of last years’s inagural event, The 2010 J-pop Anime Singing Competition is once again being organized by The Embassy of Japan and The Japan Foundation Manila.
Amateur groups composed of three to five members are invited to join (with the exemption of last year’s winners). These groups can be singing groups, bands, or groups composed of at least one vocalist and two back-up dancers.
Prospective contestants must submit a fully accomplished application form, a group photo and short write up, and a demo CD containing two Japanese songs performed by the group. For a complete list of rules, click here.
Applications can be sent in until 20th May 2010 to the Japan Information and Culture Center (JICC) Library, Embassy of Japan, 2627 Roxas Boulevard, Pasay City (MAP). Only ten groups will be selected for the final performance. The Grand Finals will be held on 24th July 2010 at Cyberzone, SM City North EDSA (Annex).
The J-Pop and Anime Singing Contest is presented by the Embassy of Japan in cooperation with the Japan Foundation Manila and in partnership with the SM Supermalls and SM Cyberzone.
