In the event that two or more participants present the same song, the one that was received first during the registration period will have priority. The rest must change the proposed song.

By their participation in the contest and the online presentation of the registration form, the participants authorize the organization of the festival to use the songs presented, the recording of their performances at the Gala, as well as their images and photographs at the festival, to promote and disseminate in the media, their talent and the event itself.
