The Grand March of Lisbon 2024 competition is now open

The Grande Marcha de Lisboa 2024 competition has already opened and applications can be submitted until February 23rd.

This year, TAGUS serves as inspiration for the competition, a joint initiative between Lisbon City Council and EGEAC – Equipment Management and Cultural Entertainment Company, which annually chooses the composition that will be presented and performed by all Popular Marches in June during the Lisbon Festivities.

The objective of the competition is to choose the music and lyrics that, through their literary and musical attributes, best characterize the city. An original song that, in addition to Lisbon, an obligatory theme, should also be about THE TAGUS this year.

The conditions for participation in the competition, already published in the Municipal Bulletin, dictate, for example, that candidates can submit more than one composition to the jury. The lyrics of the compositions must be in Portuguese, must not contain advertising references and the music must have a maximum duration of four minutes.

Open to everyone, individually or collectively, those residing in Portugal and those of legal age, this competition has been a tradition for more than two decades, annually distinguishing the literary and musical originality of the authors of the winning composition with a prize worth €5,500 ( five thousand and five hundred euros).

The Grande Marcha de Lisboa 2024 will be selected by a jury made up of three personalities of recognized merit in the cultural area who will, respectively, evaluate the music, the lyrics and the general composition.

Proposals must be sent, anonymously, by registered mail with acknowledgement of receipt, to EGEAC headquarters, by February 23rd.
