    showcase for/of?

    The festival remains a showcase for new talent.
    The festival remains a showcase of new talent.

    It's been really painfully confusing when to choose 'for' and when to choose 'of', when both 'for' and 'of' seem to fit (for me, of course).

    Would anybody please express his/her view on the difference between the two sentences above?

    Thank you very much!

    Hi, Peter!

    1. The festival remains a showcase as for new talent. -in relation to, from the pointview of new talent
    2. The festival remains new talent's showcase. --it's their stage, to show possession

    Does that help?
