Poland have decided against their usual national selection format and will instead internally select an act for Eurovision 2024 using a section panel.

TVP, Poland’s national broadcaster, added that the submission window is now open and will close on Friday 2 February 2024.

In their official press release, they also include the rules and regulations of the forthcoming selection process. 
If you fancy submitting an entry for Poland, here is some of the participation criteria.

Poland’s Internal Submission Criteria for Eurovision 2024

  • Must be at least 16 years old before 1 May 2024.
  • Performer must have Polish citizenship.
  • Cannot be longer than 3 minutes.
  • A premiere piece and must not have been published anywhere before 1 September 2023.
  • The submitted work must have original music and lyrics in any language.
  • Not an arrangement of folk tunes and may not be a so-called “cover”.
  • If a music band is entered, it may be composed of a maximum of 6 people.
  • The submitted work may not contain any discriminatory content against any social groups.

It is also recommended that the performers entered in the competition should be involved in writing the lyrics and composition of the submitted entry.

What should the application to the Competition should include?

  • A scan of the completed and signed entry form,
  • A scan of the signed Rules of the National Eliminations for the 68th Eurovision Song Contest Eurovision Song Contest 2024,
  • An mp3 file with the song (audio files with uploaded demo vocals are not allowed),
  • A copy of the entry form.
  • At least two photos of the entered Performer or Ensemble,
  • Biographical note of the entered Performer.

Submissions should be sent by e-mail to: [email protected] no later than by 2 February 2024 at 22.00 CET

How will the song be selected?

Each person on the selection panel will individually assess each of the entries

The entries received will be assessed by awarding them points on a scale of 1-10, with the highest quality entry receiving 10 points and the lowest quality entry receiving 1 point. 
(The numbers of points awarded may be repeated)

The Secretary of the Competition Committee will add up the individual scores of the members of the Competition Committee. The submitted Performer with the highest number of points will become the winner of the National Pre-selection and will automatically represent Poland at the ESC 2024.
If two or more Performers obtain the same number of points, the Secretary of the Competition Committee will convene a meeting of the Competition Committee, during which, the selection of Poland’s representative at the ESC 2024 will be made.

Who do you want to represent Poland at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest? Let us know in the comments.

For those who aren’t aware of the situation in Poland: we just had elections, and the new government has recently begun a battle to reclaim and depoliticize TVP. There’s immense legal chaos, and nobody truly knows who’s in charge, which makes it a miracle that we’re even participating in Eurovision. Honestly, nobody has the bandwidth right now to quickly organize any pre-selections.

I knew you guys had elections recently, and when it was announced that poland was doing the internal selection this year, I figured something chaotic was happening at the broadcaster. This explains it. I hope eventually TVP gets itself together and pick something good or at least decent.

I see they got tired of being accused of corruption in NF.

So it’s not a sure thing for Witcher, like some pretended to know? I won’t be mad, as usual, I don’t get the hype at all. But Justyna, she’s a great artist and it’d be fantastic if someone of her caliber represented Poland, especially after Bejba.

what do you mean with ”especially after bejba” aren’t you tired of being a salty hater, but honestly Blanka slayed, in your face lols

she was vocally even super decent at ESC compared to the NF

her only crime is having many connections and having grown up filthy rich that is the only reason why the salty Jann fans were against her, but tbh Jann was disastrously bad lmao

It is actually a good thing she will not be selected. It is a horror song.

I feel like her song is overhyped this year. It doesn’t have too much of a melody and brings fusion the wrong way. Rim Tim Tagi Dim is how you fuse genres.

Good. Internal is better than putting a show of fake democracy. Poland will need a little time to clean up the p i ss of PIS, so internal is the way to go for now.

– It makes a lot of sense that they’re reopening the selection after changing out the leadership at TVP. The way people reacted after TBSE23 must’ve deterred a lot of people.
– It’s interesting how they’re not settling for Justyna Steczkowska, I love their energy of trying for more.
– After looking at the preQs on Eesti Laul, I’m a bit skeptical if a panel really is the best way to pick an artist. But it makes sense, a rules-governed process feels a lot less corrupt than just picking one.
