Turkvision Song Contest (Turkish: Türkvizyon Şarkı Yarışması), also known as Türkvizyon Song Contest, is an annual song contest created by Turkish music channel TMB TV, inspired by the format of the Eurovision Song Contest. The first edition took place in Eskişehir, Turkey. The semi-final was held on 19 December 2013, with the grand final taking place on 21 December 2013.[1] Countries and regions which are Turkic-speaking and of Turkic ethnicity are eligible to participate in the song contest.[2]

Format[edit]

Turkvision is an annual song contest which was created by TÜRKSOY in cooperation with the Turkish music channel TMB TV. Based on the similar format of the Eurovision Song Contest, Turkvision focuses primarily on participating Turkic countries and regions. The participating countries and regions have to take part in the Semi Final. A juror from each nation awards between 1 and 10 points for every entry, except their own. An amount of 12 to 15 nations qualify for the Grand Final where the jury determines the winner. TÜRKSOY has stated that televoting is going to be introduced in the future.[2] Unlike the Eurovision Song Contest in which the winning country proceeds to host the following year's event, hosting of the Turkvision Song Contest takes place in the country or region that is also hosting the Turkish Capital of Culture.[3]

Participation[edit]

Participation since 2013:
  Entered at least once
  Entered at least once, but only in a combined entry
  Never entered, although eligible to do so
  Entry intended but later withdrew

Participants from Turkic-speaking and Turkic countries or regions are eligible to compete in the annual Turkvision Song Contests, such as Crimea, Karachay-Cherkessia, and Turkey.[2] Twenty-four countries and regions took part in the first edition of Turkvision. There have been several unsuccessful attempts to participate in the Turkvision Song Contest. Chuvashia, Russia, Turkmenistan, and Xinjiang were one of the original twenty-four participating areas with initial intentions to competing at the 2013 Contest, but later withdrew for undisclosed reasons.[4]
