"The final of the contest will take place at a rally in protest of the presence of the U.S. base on the territory of the Manas airport near Bishkek in late April 2008. The prize will be awarded then as well," Trofimov told journalists on Monday.

The prize for the best song against the U.S. base is $200, he said. "Surely, Kyrgyz rock and rap singers will back the idea," Trofimov said.

Trofimov also said that on February 29 the Bishkek City Court will hear a claim of the public organization to the Kyrgyz government and the president dealing with the need to invalidate a contract for the presence of the Mans airbase in Kyrgyzstan, which was filed last spring.
