The deadline for the submission of songs is 1 November at 15, but songs can be brought already today to the reception desk of television building at Gonsiori 27.
“Everyone is welcome, there is no difference whether you are an experienced player or hence written only to the drawer. The essential is to bring a song which tells a story about something unique, only characteristic of you with 180 seconds,” Mart Normet, the producer of Eesti Laul says. “The idea of Eesti Laul lies in that all artists and collectives would have boldly their own face. Thus Eesti Laul is one big party of Estonian music!“
One music author or collective of authors can participate in the competition of Eesti Laul 2018 with up to three songs. Also, one artist can submit three songs as maximum for listening to the preliminary jury. As always – the length of the song should not exceed three minutes.

Both the melody and words should be new – this means that not played in public before 1 September 2017.
The song should be delivered to the TV building on memory stick. In addition to the song we are waiting for the forms about authors and performers on memory stick, also photos and brief biography of the performer with the artist’s performance experience on stage and in television.
