As we suggested earlier, the Icelandic final will take place at February 15. From the 190 submitted songs, 15 will be selected for the national final Songvakeppnin 2003.
According to Kato Hansen, head of OGAE Norway, the Icelandic broadcaster RÚV is searching for a venue to hold the national final, but the possibility to organise it in the television studio has not been ruled out.
With the song Angel Iceland did not manage to bring enough points together to participate in 2002 again, but for 2003 they are back in the contest. Iceland was drawn for the first start position.
