With Grand Final success achieved at the past 5 Contests - including a 4th place result, a 3rd place finish and of course the triumphant win that brings us to Switzerland for the next Eurovision - Swiss broadcaster SRG SSR will once again be using an internal selection to find its entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2025. 

Once songs have been submitted to the broadcaster, a multi-stage selection process will commence. This involves a Swiss audience jury, an international audience jury, plus a 25-member international jury of experts who have already served as members of juries at the Eurovision Song Contest in the past. 

The Swiss broadcaster has announced that the submission window opens on 8 August 2024, and will close a couple of weeks later, at 22:00 CET on 22 August. Full details of the registration requirements and the selection process have been published on the broadcaster's own website.

The winning song, Switzerland's entry to the 69th Contest, will be revealed at the beginning of 2025.

After winning the Eurovision Song Contest in 2024 with The Code by Nemo, Switzerland will not only host the Contest in 2025, but will also qualify automatically to the Grand Final.
