Finland: YLE announces open submissions for UMK 2020

After two unsuccessful attempts to reach the top with well-known artists, the Finnish broadcaster has announced the return of an open selection process to choose the national hopeful for 2020.

UMK and YleX will produce the two upcoming seasons of the Finnish format, which will feature different artists selected from an open call.

We want to cooperate to look for the most competitive songs. This will also give amateur singers new opportunities. YleX, which has been awarded a national prize, has already supported new Finnish talents and composers., said Anssi Autio YLE UMK producer, and Hanne Kautto, YleX programme manager.

This decision supports the public choice of an open national selection in which the public and YLE will decide the Eurovision act.

The submission period will be open from 1-8 November 2019.
