HKAMF 2019 is under way - call for contestant applications

The Hong Kong Asian-Pop Music Festival (HKAMF) is proudly entering the 9th year in 2019.  The HKAMF 2019 will be held in Hong Kong at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre on 22nd March, 2019. 

The nomination of contestants for the HKAMF 2019 Supernova Song Contest has begun and the deadline for nomination is 15th December, 2018. The selection of the one representative from all qualified nominations will be by an independent selection panel.  The successful candidate from each of the following regions being Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam will compete at the HKAMF 2019.

Please note that the qualification for entries requires a music recording publication debut by the artiste released within the last 5 years by a record label including CD/DVD and Digital Release in the online environment, with the emphasis that the nomination must come from a record label or artiste management that has established track record in such business in Hong Kong.   While the nomination is open to all companies in Hong Kong, indie artistes release without a label, small quantity CD sampling; in-concert distribution by the artiste before they are first signed to a label are not counted as a release.   The nomination company will be responsible to ensure this qualification is met.  If in doubt, please contact us for clarification.  We however hold the ultimate decision in accepting the nomination.

Please kindly supply CD/DVD samples, photo, and music video with the signed Nomination Form for our checking as well as for the independent Selection Panel for reference.

The successful candidate will need to prepare at own cost a second music backing of a popular cover song in the event that the candidates enters the 2nd round competition at the final.  

For eligibility and nomination procedure, please refer to the attached Nomination Form for HKAMF 2019.

HKAMF 2019 will again be supported by Create Hong Kong, the leading sponsor. Commercial sponsorship is welcome.
