The CDC, in a release, said registration closes on Tuesday, 22nd April and auditions would be held on Wednesday, 23rd April 2014. Registration forms must be accompanied by a copy of the song on a CD, which should be ready for airplay.

The “Best New Song Competition” forms part of the official opening of Vincy Mas, which is scheduled for Saturday, 3rd May.

The CDC announcement follows a report in another section of the press last weekend that there would be no New Song competition for the launch of Carnival. The report said the event was cut because the CDC was facing some financial challenges.
