Does it cost money to participate?
No purchase is necessary to enter or win.
What should be the opening frame of my video?
It is highly recommended that the opening frame of the video shows most of the group members inside the vehicle (and NOT a black screen or text).
Does the car have to be parked throughout the filming?

Can we sing non-Eurovision songs in our video?
Sorry, you can’t. In all entries you must sing past or present Eurovision songs.
Can I appear in more than one video?
Nope. Each group member is allowed to participate in one video.
Do all group members need to register online?
No. Each group should designate one of the members as the group’s representative. He or she shall be the contact person who will submit the entry for the competition, and accept the Terms and Conditions on behalf of all group members. The group representative must be at least 18 years of age or older.
What will happen after I upload my video?
After uploading your video, you will see a blue checkmark (
) on the Registration Form and you will receive an email confirming your upload. Your video will then be reviewed by our team.
Should I upload my video entry on Facebook AND on YouTube?
No, please choose only one platform when completing the Registration Form and entering the competition. After you finish registering, feel free to share your video as you like.
Why can’t I see my video, even though I’ve uploaded it and finished registration?
If you’ve just finished registration, we may be reviewing your entry, which can sometimes take a couple of days. Another possibility is that your video did not comply with the Terms and Conditions, and was therefore disqualified.
How long can my video be?
Videos must be at least 10 seconds long, and no longer than 180 seconds long.
Where will the winning group members stay in Tel Aviv?
The prize includes 3 nights of accommodation nights at a luxurious Tel Aviv beach hotel, including full board (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), subject to the Terms and Conditions.

When will the winning video be announced?
Announcement of the winning video (the video that received the most points from the Judges) will be published by

Can I upload videos filmed inside or outside the MyHeritage Eurovision Bus?
Videos can also be recorded inside and (only for the Eurovision Bus) outside in a close distance to the MyHeritage Eurovision Bus. More details and the tour route can be found at: https://www.myheritage.com/eurovision/bus/
Should all group members sing the same song, or can they sing different songs?
It’s up to you, but singing 2 different songs at the same time might get a bit noisy right? Yes, you can certainly sing several songs in the course of 1 video, simultaneously OR one after the other, and have different members sing different songs/parts of a song/or all the songs together.
Should we sing the whole song/s, or just a part of it/them?
Whatever you like, both are accepted.
I have tried numerous times to upload my video to YouTube, but haven’t succeeded. I attempted to do it from several desktop devices, and it still doesn’t work. I also can’t upload via the Facebook option because I do not have a Facebook account. What should I do?
Is it also possible to create a medley or mashup instead of performing just one song?
You absolutely can create a medley or a mashup of a few songs edited together. It’s a great idea!
