At this point in time, the local festival circuit has been witnessing a surge in competitions where the original songs have to be in Maltese, noting that the Malta Eurovision Song Contest remains to be the only one where English is the predominant language. This will not be the case in a couple of days time, as the organising committee of the Summer Hit Song Contest, which we are proud to support, will be receiving applications from those willing to partake in the event, being broadcast on F Living throughout the summer months. For the FULL version of Regulations along with the Applications, please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Against a fee of €50, each submission should be original in both music and lyrics, and no longer than 3 minutes 30 seconds in duration. It is worth reminding lyricists in particular that the subject cannot be interpreted as to being either political racist or anti-religious as those would definitely be grounds for immediate disqualification. If any artist, who submits more than one entry, gets through with two, then he would get the opportunity to perform the one with the highest amount of points, with the other songs either passed onto other performers or withdrawn from the competition at the discretion of the songwriters. Submission of entries will be received at the BME Studios in Luqa on the 24th May 2014.

It is worth keeping in mind that one of the main aims will be to give the 18 lucky finalists due exposure as the judges search for that hit song. Amber, former runner-up at the Malta Eurovision Song Contest with Answer With Your Eyes and Karen DeBattista, 2014 winner of L-Għanja tal-Poplu with Jien Ma Naħdimx were just two of the many artists who kick-started their career during the Summer Hit Song Contest. Previous winners include none other than; Miriam Christine, Romina Mamo, Minik ft. Siconix and Neville Refalo. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news.
