Musikalikasan is an online rap (singing and composition) contest where the rap songs composed by the artists should be related to the photo montage they selected from the collection provided by the Palawan Council for Sustainable Development Staff (PCSDS).

The montage shots that are provided by the PCSDS show environmental issues and/or good sustainable practices.

This online activity aims to reach Palaweño music artists, especially the ‘rap community’ of the province, and encourage them to be more involved in the protection and conservation of the environment.

MECHANICS

  1. A collection of photo montages will be provided by the PCSDS. The contestants will choose one photo montage from the collection and compose a rap song about it.
  • Persons of all ages can join the competition. Only Palaweños are allowed to join, including those who are currently living outside Palawan. One individual or a group may submit one (1) entry.
  • The contestant should compose a song about the photo montage he chose, and use his own original beat. He may also use beats which were not of his own creation, provided that such beats are not subject to copyrights.

Non-copyrighted beats should be indicated in their entries and the source should be properly indicated.

  • Each entry must have a minimum length of 30 seconds (0:30) and a maximum of 2 minutes and 30 seconds (2:30).
