Anton Attard, Chief Executive Officer of the Public Broadcasting Services as well as the Head of Delegation for the past three years confirmed that Malta will be returning to the Eurovision Song Contest in 2014 following a guest appearance on the daily evening talkshow, TV Hemm produced by Where's Everybody. In light of the success achieved at the esteemed international competition in 2013 thanks to Tomorrow co-written by Boris Cezek and Dean Muscat to the vocals of Gianluca, Attard stated this exposure for the country has been important even towards giving exposure to the professionality of the local music scene. 

Malta has been competing in the Eurovision Song Contest every year since 1991 and has never missed the contest due to the initial relegation rules that had been set in place noting consecutive top ten results from 1991 until 1998 and then from 2000 until 2002. Since the introduction of the semi-final system, Malta has managed to qualify on four out of eight occasions, these being in 2004 with On Again .. Off Again performed by Julie & Ludwig, in 2009 with Chiara and her entry What If We, in 2012 with This is the Night sung by Kurt Calleja and of course, last week with Tomorrow performed by Gianluca.

Anton Attard, currently Head of Delegation and Chief Executive Officer at the Public Broadcasting Services has helped rebrand our participation in the Eurovision Song Contest, working hard with his team to achieve the best possible production quality and the best results both locally and abroad. He states, that he will be putting forward a proposal to the Board of Directors at the broadcaster about his plans for the 2014 selection process but more will be revealed in due course. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com, even on Facebook and Twitter for all of the latest news with regards to next years' edition of the Eurovision Song Contest in Denmark.
