Philpop MusicFest Foundation's Executive Director Ryan Cayabyab shares that this is the most diverse collection of entries. "I heard a lot of rock, pop, rap, hip hop, folk, R&B, ballad and a sprinkling of swing and dance music," said our 2012 MYX Magna Awardee. 

The first-ever Philippine Popular Music Festival champion is former Akafellas member Karl Villuga with his song "Bawat Hakbang". "We are looking forward to again stage the biggest and most illustrious song writing competition in Philippine history with an even more songwriters vying for the 1 million peso grand prize," added Mr.C.
