International Panorama Competition Today! | Trinidad 2015

Today is the day that specially invited steel-bands and winners of  National Panorama Competitions will competed for pan superiority. This is the first international competition for the steel-bands that takes the Panorama Carnival Format. 

The judging rules are International in nature with an International panel of judges overseeing the competition.The high and low scores will be removed and the final score tabulated from the six remaining adjudged scores. The final results cannot be protested!

Usually bands in Trinidad and Tobago have more than 100 players but for this competition the bands have been limited to 60 (sixty) players. Many bands that don't have the amount of players can fill the void with players from Trinidad and Tobago; however, 75% of the players must come form the country of the band's origin.   

Payment issues:
Some people have paid for the show and got their log in information without issue. My experience has not been a good one. I paid using PayPal but I have not received any log in information. Help is scarce and emails to Worldcast Live Inc. have proven to be fruitless. I am not the only person with this issue. The When Steel Talks site have similar complaints. The people in Trinidad responsible for this show don't seem to care much about this issue.  Those who have issues getting the code should first check their junk mail. Some email programs are recognizing the e-mail as junk. Please check your junk mail before panic sets in...

For those who cannot get the Live Video Feed there is still hope; you can LISTEN to the show, starting at 3:00 pm today, from Vibe CT 105. Here in the link to the station via the Tunein website:
