INFE Network: INFEvision Video Song Contest 2018 to be held on December 15
INFEvision 2018, the video contest held by the International Network of Fan Clubs of Eurovision (I.N.F.E) will be holding this year’s edition in Minsk, Belarus on December 15.
After last year’s United Kingdom’s victory and following the country’s withdrawal from this year’s edition, host country of this year will be Belarus. The local INFE Belarus club promises us an outstanding INFEvision Video Contest.
This year’s edition was launched in mid September when INFE Belarus revealed the INFEvision 2018 slogan “UnitedByMusic” . From that point all INFE clubs were given a period until 7 October to confirm participation to the host country. A total of 18 countries around the globe will eventually be participating in this year’s contest, which is a new record number for the comeptition itself.
According to the regulations sent to all INFE clubs the participating countries must submit their acts, songs and official videos of their entries no longer after November 10. All national clubs have the right to determine their representatives through a national selection process or internally or in any other format they choose. The videos of all participating countries will be revealed after November 10.
The Grand final of the contest is scheduled to take place on December 15 and will be aired by the host country on the official Youtube channel. The final result will be determined by the countries’ votes and an online voting that the organizers will launch just after all national selections are over and the competing entries are finalized.
Last year Peyton won the compeition with his song When they go low selected by the INFE UK club internally. Let’s remember the video that brought the trophy to the UK:
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 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 were members of INFE that took part individually, 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 secondary terms may change according to the host country’s special rules but the general framework remains the same.
