RTSH the Albanian national broadcaster has opened submissions for Festivali i Kenges 2014. The winner of Festivali i Kenges traditionally goes on to represent Albania at the Eurovision Song Contest and has been used to select their participant since their debut in 2004. Albanian participation in this years contest is expected to be confirmed shortly.
As always participants in FiK must be ethnic Albanian, this means no international non ethnic Albanians can take part in the contest. FiK has been criticised in recent years for not being modern or up to date, it has also failed to bring Albania into the final for the past 2 years.
Submissions are open on the 14th and 15th of October.
