MRT, the national broadcaster of FYR Macedonia, has opened submissions for artists and composers to submit their song entries for the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest.

Opening submissions to artists and composers around nationally and internationally, MRT is looking for original and creative entries for the nation’s internally selected artist, Jana Burčeska, to perform the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest.

Artists and composers wanting to submit their song entries to MRT should submit a demo tape to the broadcaster at [email protected]. Entries should be a maximum of 3 minutes long and must comply with Eurovision requirements.

The open call for entries closes on the 25 December, with more details expected to be released in the weeks to come.

FYR Macedonia’s last qualification was in 2012, finishing in 13th place.

It’s been over 4 years since FYR Macedonia’s last qualification in the Eurovision Song Contest, last appearing in the Grand Final of the competition in 2012 with Kaliopi’s Crno i belo.

The country has since seen a run of non-qualifications over the years to follow, recently only just missing out on the Grand Final following Kaliopi’s return to the contest who went on to finish in 11th position in the second semi-final.

With MRT opening a call for submissions for Kyiv, will 2017 be the year we see FYR Macedonia in the Grand Final of the competition?
