FYR Macedonia 2015: almost 200 submissions
SKOPJE, FORMER YUGOSLAV REPUBLIC OF MACEDONIA – Portal dnevnik.mk published an article about upcoming Skopje Festival. It seems that a bit less than 200 songs came to the address of MRT and according to Valentino Skenderovski, who is the artistic director of the festival, most of the participants have already been chosen.
But Mr Skenderovski added that the list is still not finalised as they are still negotiating with some well-known authors and performers, with whom they hope they will attract more people to watch the show.
It was also revealed that there will be a split in the voting between the public and jury and that beside money prizes, some other will be given out too. And a change in the date is in order due to a national holiday, so the first national final of the season will be held on November 12th.
