Pre-Qualification Round 1 (abbreviated PQR 1), is a pre-event held for the eighth edition of the North Vision Song Contest. Nine countries were participating and four of them qualified to the semi finals of the edition. Turkey was chosen as the host country and the venue was the Cemil Topuzlu Open-Air Theatre in Harbiye, Sisli.


For further information see Harbiye

Harbiye is a neighbourhood of Şişli, Istanbul, Turkey. The neighbourhood takes its name from the Mekteb-i Harbiye (Ottoman War Academy) that functioned here for many years, although with intervals, in the 19th and 20th Centuries and whose buildings continue to serve as the Military Museum of Istanbul.

Among the other important buildings located in Harbiye are Istanbul Radio House, the Cemal Reşit Rey Concert Hall and the Cemil Topuzlu Open-Air Theatre, all republican era architectural assets of Turkey.

Bidding phase

Those who finished in the lowest 5 positions of each Semi Final of the seventh edition will have to participate in the pre-qualification round. Four countries will qualify from the pre-qualification round and can join the Semi Finals of this edition. It was decided that Switzerland would not have to participate in the PQR because it did not originally finish in the bottom 10 in NVSC 07. It finished 11th-to-last, and only originally had to participate in the PQR because Cyprus, who came second to last in the same semi withdrew from the eighth edition.
