Hafiz Chotchaeva from the two regions participating broadcaster “Elbrusoid” said that:
Bidders may be artists that are part of the Turkic language family, so the organizers of the invitations were sent to the Ministry of Culture of the Kabardino-Balkaria and Karachay-Cherkessia. Participants can perform as folk and original songs, but only in their native language
The selection will take place in two parts. Those wishing to take part will submit their songs to the Ministry of Culture, who will then select the best songs to go into a live selection. The live selection will then take place in Cherkessek the Capital of Karachay-Cherkessia, where a jury made up of members from both regions will select their entrant for the contest.
The date of the selection has not yet been announced, however according to the rules it must take place in September.
