An open call for compositions for consideration as the Australian entry into the Eurovision Song Contest closes on Sunday.
SBS Commissioning Editor of Entertainment Josh Martin said: “Hundreds of songwriters across Australia have already submitted a diverse mix of songs – from pop to country, ballad to thrash metal, novelty to opera and everything in between.
“There have been entries from famous songwriters and composers alongside unpublished and emerging songwriters – some as young as 12.”
Australian Head of Delegation and Director of Blink TV Paul Clarke said: “We are looking for songs that will really touch the hearts of Europe. Come on Australia, we need drama, daring, and diversity. That’s what it takes to be noticed at Eurovision.
“We know a lot of songwriters and producers will be working down to the wire of the deadline next week. It’s worth saying that the song doesn’t have to be finished, it can just be a demo – but it must be in by November 4.”
