Well, in their own words:

The selection committee aims for an entry with preferably a contemporary, but in any case authentic sound. A song that is able to survive in a competition. By a Dutch artist who can and wants to present a personal song in a distinctive way, in any genre, and if possible a personal story.

  • Song has not been (commercially) released before 1 September 2022
  • Song lasts up to 03:00 minutes
