East Vision Song Contest (abbreviated EVSC) sometimes spelled Eastvision Song Contest, is a song contest created by Asian broadcasters as an eastern equivalent to the North Vision Song Contest.


History

In August 2013, the confirmations for the first ever East Vision Song Contest started. Asian countries that were not full members of the NBU were allowed to participate in the contest. Asia, Arabia aswell as Oceania appreciated the contest. The first edition contained 31 participants. Since then the number of participants has decreased by every edition, until the 4th, where the contest saw its first rise.

In February 2017, contest creator Sam Hines left in a sudden unexpected movement. The Head of Delegation and organiser of the contest for the current edition at the time (EVSC 9) 羅伯特·赫斯洛普 (Luóbótè·Hèsīluòpǔ) from Taiwan took acting responsibility for the contest. He abandoned the idea of free selection and gave all original teams their status of participation back.

National selections

The broadcaster has the opportunity to fully decide how his national selection will be held. The amount of the songs, artists and the format of the show can be chosen by the broadcaster. The only rule applied to the selection's entries is that the artists have to be native to the country. However, foreign artists can be added if there are at least 9 other artists in the selection that are native to the country the national selection is hosted for. If a song competes in a national selection, it cannot appear in any national or internal selection after. These rules apply for every country. Some countries have already hold many national selections. e.g.
