Although, the country have yet to officially confirm their presence at next years Eurovision, Albania tend to use the song festival to chose the countries Eurovision entries.
This years motto for December's show is "Come To The Festival (Eja Ne Festival)". The submission period is only open for five weeks, and will officially close on the 30th June. Interested parties must head to the official website of the broadcaster for more information.
