THE 2014 Tuckers Ice Cream Fijiwood Dance competition was launched last week in Suva.
The competition, organised by Film Fiji since 2006 as part of the Kula Film Awards, has become an important event in the calendar of activities for high schools around Fiji.
Film Fiji acting chairperson Shaenaz Voss said sponsors would provide a platform on which young Fijians from 22 participating schools could showcase their inherent talents.
"Dance and music are important facers of the entertainment industry. A dance competition such as this allows artists to showcase their skills with other dancers on a national platform and talent in these fields must be encouraged so that our young people can consider these areas for a career path," Ms Voss said.
