Interested composers may submit entries to the 2015 Philippine Popular Music Festival (PhilPop) songwriting competition until Feb. 28.

The contest, now in its fourth edition, is open to all amateur and professional songwriters who are Filipino or of Filipino descent. PhilPop, which aims to foster musical creativity and innovation, urges hopefuls to experiment: A song entry may be written in any genre or form; the use of other Filipino dialects are likewise encouraged.
