Art = Artist Ko
Pop = Vispop

About Artist KO:

Artist KO is a marketing cooperative with artists, musicians, and entrepreneurs as members. It is an organization that supports individual creativity, skill and talent in sectors of the creative industries from where it originates. It engages to converge arts, business, and technology cohesively and channel them into income generating streams. These are the same individuals that can potentially support for wealth and job creation by realizing creative collaborations of inter-disciplines and the exploitation of intellectual property.

About VisPop:

Cebuano songs are definitely in this year, with Artist Ko and Tsinelas Inc. inviting all songwriters to join the newest Cebuano songwriting competition, VISPOP. Taking on the ambivalent tagline "Bisayaa Uy!", VISPOP aims to alleviate the current state of Cebuano music on radio by introducing a more professional and competitive playlist of new Cebuano songs.

Event organizers place great emphasis on VISPOP as being a campaign rather than just a competition. The campaign includes educational opportunities in the form of songwriting workshops and symposiums wherein possible entrants can hone and professionalize their songwriting skills.

Campaign rules and entry forms may be downloaded at vispop.multiply.com. Entries may be emailed to visayanpop@gmail.com with the following as attachments: a scanned duly accomplished entry form in .jpeg format, lyrics sheet in .doc format, 3” x 5” photos of the songwriters in .jpeg format and an mp3 file of the entry song. Entries may also be hand-delivered or mailed to Outpost Restobar, 976B Veteran’s Drive, Lahug, Cebu City 6000. Deadline of submission is on August 14, 2010. There will be no extensions of the deadline. Entries that are submitted after the deadline will not be accepted.

The campaign will culminate on October 30, 2010 for the Finals Night at Saint Theresa’s College Auditorium. The six chosen finalists will perform their winning songs alongside Cebu’s finest musicians and performers.
