Switzerland: SRF opens submissions for the Eurovision Song Contest 2023

The Swiss broadcaster SRF has opened applications for their song at the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 today! The deadline to enter a song will be on the 8th of September at 22:00 CET.

Artists, songwriters, producers and lyrcists are welcome to submit a song for Switzerland. The broadcaster’s announcement did not name any conditions for an applicant to be from Switzerland, which means that international submissions are welcome too.

Switzerland’s entry will be determined by a selection comitee of 100 selected viewers and an international expert jury, consisting of 20 music professionals, that have a lot of experience in this category, according to SRF. This selection process will take place in several steps and will not be held publicly.

You can apply here through this link. The application requires all the usual, personal information of the applicant, the producer and composer, as well as a song title and a file to the song.

At this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Turin, Switzerland managed to qualify to the Grand Final for the third time in a row with the song “Boys Do Cry”, performed by Marius Baer. Despite not being as succesful as his predecessors Luca Hänni (4th place) and Gjon’s Tears (3rd place) and not receiving any televote points, Marius still managed to finish in a respectable 17th place with the help from the international juries.
