Poor lighting at Kings and Queens Competition upsets viewers

An investigation has been launched by the National Carnival Commission of Trinidad and Tobago (NCC) following a series of complaints by viewers of Wednesday night’s Junior and Senior Kings and Queens Competition held at Carnival City, Queen’s Park Savannah.

Viewers tuning in to TTT expressed their displeasure over the lighting conditions at the venue, which they said affected their ability to see and experience the full splendor of the presentations.

The NCC acknowledged that the reduced lighting noticeably affected the telecast on TTT.

It assured that a comprehensive follow-up investigation with its Operations and Stage Management teams is ongoing, with further assurance given that clearly defined and adaptive measures will be put in place to prevent reoccurrences at future Carnival City events.

The NCC also apologised to those who tuned in to see the mas presentations for the lighting conditions, acknowledging that these viewers were “potentially deprived of the production’s fullest visual potential”.

Further, the NCC has invited the public to share via email ( or Facebook any concerns and ideas they may have.
