Poland in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2016

Poland has entered the Junior Eurovision Song Contest three times, competing in the first contest in 2003. The Polish broadcaster Telewizja Polska(TVP) decided to withdraw from the contest after coming last in both 2003 and in 2004, despite TVP signing a 3-year contract with the European Broadcasting Union (EBU). In 2016, it was announced that Poland would return after an 11-year break.

There was some debate on whether Poland could return to Junior Eurovision in 2008. TVP stated that the contestant could be chosen through the existing program Mini szansa, and would be broadcast on the secondary channel TVP2. This however did not materialise, and Poland remained out of the contest. On 14 June 2016, the Head of Music at TVP announced that Poland was considering a return to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2016, after an 11-year absence from the contest. He stated that an invitation was issued to potential participants to submit songs to the broadcaster, but reaffirmed that they had not made a complete decision on whether they would actually be participating. On 30 August 2016, TVP officially confirmed that Poland would return and launched its national selection.[1]

Poland made their debut at the inaugural Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2003. The Polish broadcaster, Telewizja Polska (TVP), were in charge of organising their entrants into the contest. Thirteen participants took part in the first national selection which was held on 28 September 2003. The winner who went on to represent Poland at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2003 was Katarzyna Żurawik with her song “Coś mnie nosi”.[2] Żurawik performed in position 7 at the contest. She finished in last place scoring 3 points.[2] Despite TVP signing a 3-year contract with the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), they later decided to withdraw from the contest.[3]

Poland had considered returning to Junior Eurovision in 2008, as TVP stated that the contestant could be chosen through the existing program Mini szansa, and would be broadcast on the secondary channel TVP2.[4] However, Poland decided to remain absent from the contest.[5] On 14 June 2016, the Head of Music at TVP announced that Poland was considering a return to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2016, after an 12-year absence from the contest. He stated that an invitation was issued to potential participants to submit songs to the broadcaster, but reaffirmed that they had not made yet a complete decision on whether they would actually be participating.[6] On 30 August 2016, TVP officially confirmed that Poland would return and launched its national selection.[1]
