OPM & Bactidol Run for Stricter Implementation of Executive Order 255

The Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit (OPM), in partnership with the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) and co-presented by Bactidol will host a campaign run for the stricter implementation of Executive Order 255 on 18 May 2014 at the G-Strip in Greenhills, San Juan.

The race will kick off at 5AM. Dubbed “Mission: EO 255”, the event aims to raise awareness of and encourage the radio stations’ full adherence to the above-mentioned Executive Order, issued by former Pres. Corazon Aquino in 1987, requiring all radio stations with musical format programs to broadcast a minimum of four (4) original Pilipino musical compositions in every clock hour.

“OPM aims to ensure the growth of the local music industry; thus, it is very important that all radio stations implement EO 255,” said OPM President Ogie Alcasid. Furthermore, “Not only are we launching the campaign to remind radio stations – and a big thank you to those who do implement EO 255 – but also to let the public know that they can expect a minimum of four OPM songs to be played per hour on all radio channels so as to make the implementation of EO 255 participative.”

The campaign run is also a unity run for the Filipino artists’ rights and welfare.

Mission: EO 255 is a 5K race, women’s and men’s division. OPM members, cultural workers, patrons, and advocates and supporters of OPM are
expected to attend and participate. The race kit includes a race bib and tokens/freebies from sponsors. Prizes will be awarded to the finishers.

Registration is PHP 650 and is open to the public.
