Poland participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 in Düsseldorf, Germany, having selected their entry through the televised national final Krajowe Eliminacje, organised by Polish broadcaster Telewizja Polska (TVP).

Polish broadcaster TVP remained on their national selection format, with the deadline for submitting songs set for 21 December, and the jury selecting the finalists were disclosed on 22 December 2010. One week later, on 29 December, TVP announced the list of songs selected for their national selection.[1]

A board of jurors was appointed to select between 4 and 10 candidates to participate in the Polish national final. The board was composed of:[2]

  • Maria Szabłowska (music journalist of TVP and Polish Radio)
  • Krzysztof Szewczyk (music journalist of TVP and Polish Radio)
  • Piotr Klatt (president of the jury, musician, songwriter, journalist and producer of music programmes at TVP, director of the Opole festival)
  • Pawel Sztompke (journalist and music critic, editorial director of music at Polish Radio)
  • Marek Sierocki (music journalist, artistic director of the Opole and Sopot festivals)
  • Artur Orzech (TV presenter, commentator of the Eurovision Song Contest for Poland)
  • Mikołaj Dobrowolski (TV presenter, member of the division of Leisure, Culture and Entertainment Art at TVP)
  • Tomasz Deszczyński (President of OGAE Poland)

The final happened on 14 February 2011 (Valentine's Day),[3] and the Polish representative for Germany was chosen by televote.
