Host City[]

Own Americavision Song Contest Winners Edition 1 is located in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
Kingstown
Location of the host city.

Kingstown is the capital, chief port, and main commercial centre of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. With a population of 16,500 (2010), Kingstown is the most populous settlement in the country. It is the centre for the island's agricultural industry and a port of entry for tourists. The city lies within the parish of Saint George in the south-west corner of Saint Vincent.

The modern capital, Kingstown, was founded by French settlers shortly after 1722, although Saint Vincent had 196 years of British rule before its independence.

The botanical garden, conceived in 1765, is one of the oldest in the Western hemisphere. William Bligh, made famous from the Mutiny on the Bounty, brought seed of the Breadfruit tree here for planting, circa 1793.

Venue[]

The St. Vincent Memorial Hall, better known as the Peace Memorial Hall is located at Richmond Hill in the vicinity of the UWI School of Continuing Studies. Peace Memorial Hall was rebuilt in 2002 as the main cultural centre in Kingstown. It is managed by a board and is expected to be self-sustaining by its activities.

Participants[]

Each country awarded points from one to eight, then ten and finally twelve for their ten most popular songs. Unlike in the Contest proper, viewers were allowed to vote for songs which had represented their country.
