Only a few days after the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest final, where The Ark landed in the third worst position in the country's long Eurovision history, SVT has announced the deadlines for next year's Melodifestivalen.

While disappointment still prevails in the Swedish public for the poor result achieved by The Ark in last Saturday's final, SVT has announced that September 25th 2007 is the final deadline for the submission of the songs for next year's Melodifestivalen. As our partner site reports it is still early to know whether there will be any major changes in the format of the most popular TV show in Sweden. This year's show attracted over 4 million viewers in Sweden, and many thousands of international fans watching the show online.

Sweden has been participating in the contest since 1958, every year but 1964, 1970 and 1976.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
