INFEvision Video Contest
The I.N.F.E.Vision video song contest is a video song contest held by the International Network of Fanclubs of Eurovision (I.N.F.E.) and takes place via the network. The first contest took place in 2011 and after a break of two years (2015-2016) came back in 2017 with Azerbaijan being the host country.
The right to participate in this contest have all the member-clubs of the INFE network. Every local club can choose via an internal process an artist from its country and a song in the country’s language or English alongside with the official video of the competing entry. The duration of the song must be less than 5’ and the production year has to be within the last two years. In the first two editions of the contest the participants could have been individuals by selecting a country from around the world but due to the expansion of INFE and as more nations joined the Network it was decided to be organized among the clubs. However each year’s terms may change according to the host country’s special rules but the general framework remains the same.
