The national selections for the Eurovision Song Contest are being organised by the participating national public broadcasters.
Traditionally, in March, participating broadcasters have to come up with their entry for the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest.
The EBU, main organiser of the Eurovision Song Contest, is not involved with the national selections. The EBU only requires the national selections to be fair and transparent.
The national selections start already very soon after the previous Eurovision Song Contest. To get a full overview and put the dates down in your calendar, see the timetable in our calendar!
