Any interested songwriters can submit their potential entries up until 24 September 2012-and, in keeping with Eurovision rules, the song must not have been made available for public listening before 1 September.
Of the songs sent in, DR will chose six to go into their national final. An additional three or four will be selected by the broadcaster as ‘wildcards’. The location and date of the DMGP final 2013 has not yet been announced.
“We would like to continue the positive development of the Grand Prix, where the songs are modern… Dansk Melodi Grand Prix is not the same as ten years ago. We want hits, which are up to date and are the sounds of 2013” said Entertainment manager Jan Lagermand Lundme.
DR are open to foreigners submitting entries, so long as they work with either a Danish singer or composer. A copy of the rules is available here.
