Macedonia, present in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest under the provisional reference of "former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia", participated at every Junior Eurovision Song Contest since the competition commenced in 2003 and until 2011.
The country's best performance at the contest has been 5th place, achieved twice to date - in 2007 when Macedonia was represented by Rosica Kulakova and Dimitar Stojmenovski with "Ding Ding Dong"; and again in 2008 with Bobi Andonov and "Prati mi SMS". Their worst performance came in 2006, with Zana Aliu coming 15th and last in the contest.
On 13 July 2012, MKRTV confirmed to esckaz.com that Macedonia would withdraw from the contest due to issues with the voting process in the contest and the lack of budget available for participation. However in 2013 Macedonia announced its return to the competition to be held in Kiev.
