The Azerbaijani national broadcaster, İTV, has announced an open call for songs for the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest, set to take place this coming May in the host city of Kyiv.

Having confirmed in December that Diana Hajiyeva, also known under her stage name Dihaj, had been confirmed as the Azerbaijani representative at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest, İTV has now opened song submissions for the nation.

All song submissions must comply with the usual Eurovision rules, with all information including the composers, audio recordings and lyrics to be included within the e-mail.

Submissions can be sent to İTV via the email [email protected] and must be submitted by the 10 February.
