Pioneer Insurance and FILSCAP launches #MoveOnLang Songwriting Competition for College Students

Filipino Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, Inc. (FILSCAP), the sole and official music copyright society in the Philippines, together with Pioneer, one of the top life and non-life insurance companies in the country, officially launched the FILSCAP Campus Caravan this 2016 in a media event last September 19 at The Hard Rock Café in Makati City.

FILSCAP Chairman, Mr. Arturo Lui Pio, FILSCAP President and Singer-Songwriter, Rico Blanco, joined Pioneer Insurance President Mr. Lorenzo Chan, Jr. and Pioneer FVP for Marketing, Ms Len Pozon during the launch. The said activity opened with alternative rock band Sandwich entertaining guests with its live performances.

Dubbed as #MoveOnLang, the FILSCAP Songwriting Competition aims to guide aspiring musicians in the different aspects of songwriting. FILSCAP and local music icons will arrange a campus tour to host songwriting workshops in different universities around Metro Manila in support of this competition.

The FILSCAP Campus Caravan is set to visit De La Salle University-Manila, San Beda College Alabang, UP Diliman, University of Santo Tomas and University of Makati during its run. Each visit is set to have a songwriting talk to be conducted by FILSCAP, a face-to-face session with a well-known Filipino songwriter, and introduce the collaboration’s second event – the #MoveOnLang Songwriting Competition.

The #MoveOnLang Songwriting Competition aims to give musically–inclined college students a venue to showcase their songwriting skills on the Filipino trait of resiliency – bouncing back from setbacks. Interested applicants can visit to register and submit their entry.
