FRANCE – National broadcaster kicks off the search for the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest representative. Authors and singers can submit their songs as of now but they have to secure that the song will be unpublished up to September 1st neither previously released for commercial or social media reasons. There should be four authors maximum per song and all of them registered with SACEM.
It was already suggested that France 2 is working on a televised national selection in collaboration with Endemic, Mission Eurovision, but there is no information yet whether this show will be launched and if so, if it will be used for the Eurovision national selection. It was 2014 when France held a televised national final for Eurovision.
