BBN Staff:  Each year, the National Celebrations Commission strives to highlight Belize’s rich and unique cultural heritage through the numerous events held to commemorate our national celebrations.

The National Song Competition was created to provide professional and amateur musicians with the opportunity to create and showcase their original pieces.

The goal of the competition is to promote artistic expression, national pride and Belize’s diverse culture.

It comprises of two categories:

A Belize Song Competition which should be an original song reflecting a strong Belizean identity, flavor and rhythm and should inspire a sense of national pride and unity.  It should evoke a blessing or celebrate the history, traditions and diversity of the Belizean culture.

The Carnival Song Competition should be an original song, which will be used for celebratory purposes during the September celebrations and throughout the year.

The competition is open to all Belizeans both juniors and seniors.

Groups of persons or individuals may enter but will be treated as one entity.

Entries will be judged based on: audience appeal, musical arrangement, vocal quality, lyrical content and stage performance.
