The competition is organized by the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom (FNF). The Freedom Song is under the banner of The Freedom Project, which recognizes initiatives that promote freedom in the Philippines or programs that empower individuals and communities. This year, The Freedom Project will be a Freedom Song that could similarly advance freedom in the Philippines by inspiring good governance through music.

The Freedom Song will be selected by a jury headed by renowned singer and song writer Noel Cabangon. Top ten songs will be selected from the performances in the five preliminary elimination nights to be held in different provinces in the country. The contestants will have a chance to perform their music before an audience, and the finalists will be part of a concert and their songs included in a music cd. The winner or the 2014 Freedom Song will have its own music video. There will also be an online vote to determine the People’s Choice.
