ERT, the Greek national broadcaster, has confirmed to ESCToday that Greece will participate at the forthcoming 2022 Eurovision Song Contest in Italy.

Thus Greece joins the list of countries who have so far confirmed their participation at the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Italy. ERT has opened the submission window for artists wishing to represent the country at the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest and has invited  record companies to send in their proposals.

The deadline for record companies to send in their proposals to ERT has been set on Sunday 10 October.

It is more than likely that the Greek broadcaster will select the 2022 Greek Eurovision entry and act via an internal selection as has been the case in recent years.
