After confirming their participation at Eurovision 2023 in August, TVR has confirmed that it has approved the budget for its Eurovision 2023 participation and that it wants to take a new approach in their participation in 2023.
Want to take a different approach for Eurovision 2023
The budget for Romania’s 2023 participation was approved at the third meeting of TVR’s board of directors, where it was revealed that the Romanian delegation would like to take a different approach for 2023 and also confirming that the public would be selecting its representative.
We are a new team and we propose a different Eurovision contest, based on transparency, professionalism and digitization. We changed the voting system: only the public will choose the piece that will represent Romania. And one more thing: this Eurovision will be on air on TVR and much more present than in the past online, on social media networksMihai Predescu, ESC 2023 project manager
The team in charge of Romania’s participation in 2023 are currently finlising the details regarding its selection process for 2023, with the registration period to be announced as soon as possible.
