Sweden If you want to participate in Melodifestivalen 2015, the Swedish national selection for the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest, you’re welcome to submit your song to SVT between the 1st and 16th of September. Foreign composers / songwriters can participate too but only if they collaborate with Swedish composers / songwriters. You find the rules for Melodifestivalen 2015 in English here. (Source: svt.se)
The last six Swedish entries and results in the Eurovision Song Contest:
2014: Undo Sanna Nielsen Grand Final: 3rd place
2013: You Robin Stjernberg Grand Final: 14th place
2012: Euphoria Loreen Grand Final: 1st place
2011: Popular Eric Saade Grand Final: 3rd place
2010: This Is My Life Anna Bergendahl Semi Final (2): 11th place
2009: La Voix Malena Ernman Grand Final: 21st place

Anette: This year, SVT wants at least 50% of the entries to be written by female composers / lyricists. I’m still not a big fan of rules like that. Select the best songs, end of story.
