Chengdu 2021 official song contest entry date extended

Chengdu musicThe song solicitation campaign for the Chengdu 2021 FISU World University Games has soared in popularity rapidly, since its official launch on 16 November 2020. A large number of excellent works by music lovers and musicians from around the world have been received. Given the enthusiastic response and the strong desire of participation from the public, the Organising Committee has decided to extend the submission deadline to 16 March 2021. The final results will be released by June 2021. 

 

In November, the Executive Committee of Chengdu 2021 FISU World University Games had officially launched the global solicitation for original music compositions for the FISU World University Games in the summer of 2021. 

 

The campaign was first launched on the official Chengdu 2021 FISU World University Games website, open to submissions from all around the world. Three stages will take place for selection of the new song:

 

  1. Entry submission

  2. Entry evaluation

  3. Global promotion

 

The winner of the selected song will witness their original tunes become the official anthem of the Games, being used at the opening & closing ceremonies, torch relay, competitions and on many more occasions. It will also be promoted globally.

 

Participation is open to all musicians, musical groups and members of the general public passionate about sports and interested in the Chengdu 2021 FISU World University Games regardless of age, gender or occupation. There is no limit to the number of entries that can be submitted by each applicant, and submissions can be made either by mail or online. All are welcome to participate.
