Official Malta Eurovision Song Contest logo

The Malta Eurovision Song Contest is the name given to the national selection process for Malta's entry to the Eurovision Song Contest since 2011, produced by PBS, the national broadcasting corporation.

History

The Malta Eurovision Song Contest traces its history back to the Malta Song Festival, which was established in 1960.

The local contest for the selection of Malta's entry for the Eurovision Song Contest has been run under different names over the years. These include Malta Song for Europe or Festival Kanzunetta Maltija Għall-Ewropa (1991 - 1997), which was run by the Culture Department under the various ministries or parliamentary secretariats of culture between 1991 and 2008.

Malta EuroSong

The Malta Council for Culture & the Arts, which ran it between 2001 (?) and 2010 called it Malta EuroSong between 2009 and 2010, but this became the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, once it was take over completely by PBS, which is the EBU member organisation that qualifies Malta for participation in the Eurovision Song Contest.

Recent development

The most recent name change marked a departure from preceding years, ushering in a new set of rules for the selection process, including allowing non-Maltese lyricists and composers to participate in the contest.
