  8. “Horehronie” – Kristina (Slovakia 2010)
  9. “Paper” – Svala (Iceland 2017)
  10. “Space” – Slavko (Montenegro 2017)

Ireland wasn’t completely forgotten in the Top 100, with five Irish entries featuring outside of the Top 10. They were:

  • (52) “22” – Sarah McTernan (2019)
  • (55) “Playing With Numbers” – Molly Sterling (2015)
