The song selection procedure

The Georgian Public Broadcaster GPB has also announced an open contest to select the Georgian entry for the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest. Songwriters are asked to send in songs, all of which should be created specifically for these musicians. The requested style is described as "melodic song structure of alternative and indie rock with electronic beats, synths and/or samples, and club orientation of post-disco dance music."

The composition (lyrics and music) must not have been commercially released before. The song should be less than 3 minutes long. All interested songwriters are asked to send in their songs in audio version, a photo and a CV, [email protected] from December 15 until January 8.

The best five songs will be selected out of received applications and presented to the public. Then the winning song will be chosen by the viewing audience and an expert jury.
