2014 marks the 20th anniversary of Poland’s first Eurovision entry and possibly their return to the contest since their departure in 2011.
Polish Broadcaster TVP withdrew from the contest in both 2012 and 2013 citing financial constraints within the organisation. This however could be about to change. Allegedly Mr. Andrzej Siezieniewskim – who sits on the board of the EBU and is the president of Polish National Radio, has spoken favorably of the country returning to Eurovision. He is expected to hold meetings with the president of Polish National Television, Mr. Juliusz Braun shortly.
The Office of Program Coordination for Polish Television (TVP) has responded to OGAE Poland’s request for information on the country’s return to the contest stating the following “as a public broadcaster, we are interested in a Polish representative in the musical event and meeting the audience’s expectations in this respect.”
According to the website “eurowizja” – TVP are set to hold a meeting with the EBU later in the Autumn regarding Eurovision and that a decision will be announced before the closure date for entries to Eurovision 2014.
2014 will mark the 20th anniversary of Poland’s first and most successful Eurovision entry in the contest – Edyta Gorniak who performed “To Nie Ja” that came second at the contest that was held in Dublin.
