As the countdown rolls rapidly towards the largest Soca event for the Carnival season, hopeful artistes are eager to invest their $300 registration fee to sign up for their shot at taking home the Lotto Plus International Power Soca Monarch and the Digicel International Groovy Soca Monarch 2015 crowns. The titles currently held by recent Soul Train Award winner Machel Montano and Kerwyn Du Bois respectively have been the most coveted titles in the Soca arena since the competition’s inception in 1993, and promises to attract a huge number of hopefuls again this year.
Also up for grabs is the Carib Breakout Artiste title last won by the entertaining Mr Killa. This award, created by Caribbean Prestige Foundation in collaboration with Carib, Ford Trinidad and Slam 100FM, was designed to level the playing field for newer acts, as well as to deliver on the concept of “The People’s Event” by basing this award entirely on online votes. Registration for the Power and the Groovy category automatically qualifies participants for the Breakout category.
Entry forms, along with rules and regulations for the competition will be available from Monday 15th December at socamonarch.net.
