Every year Mahidol University’s Faculty of Medicine organises The SIPIstar Under the Moonlight Music Awards. Competitors cannot be from the Faculty of Medicine. There is no age restriction. The purpose of the competition is to promote and choose bands for the annual Hail Night Concert of the Faculty of Medicine.
The first round of the competition is held on Facebook. Video clips must be submitted before 5th of December 2015. There were 32 entries with 8 bands selected from judges and 2 from likes on Facebook. The Pre-College band Kinmi received the most likes (The popular vote). These 10 bands then performed at The SIPIstar second round with the 10 competitor, held on 26 January 2016.
