Locus' Eric Chan and Jason Chu, along with lyricist Anita Chung (曰云@sense) have reached the finals at Fairchild Radio's annual Canadian Chinese Song-Writers Quest songwriting contest (SQ) with their original song, 想跟最美的女孩在一起‏ (Pretty Girl). This is the trio's third consecutive appearance in the finalist position - Eric, Anita, and Jason previously qualified with their entries at the 1st and 2nd annual Song-Writers Quest held in Toronto in 2008 and 2009. The song is one of eight finalist songs selected from hundreds of original songs in Mandarin and Cantonese.

想跟最美的女孩在一起‏ will be in contention for multiple awards, including Champion Song, Best Lyrics, Best Music Arrangement, Best Performance and People’s Choice. Singer Edward Chui will be performing the song at the contest's finale held on May 28th, 2010, at Michael J. Fox Theatre.

Since 1996, the Canadian Chinese Song-writers Quest, organized by Fairchild Radio AM1470 and FM96.1, has established itself as Canada’s largest annual Chinese song-writing competition. For more information on SQ15, visit their website here.
