Iceland’s 2013 entry, ‘Ég á líf.’

A total of 297 songs were submitted, which is an increase of 25 per cent from last year.

Never has the contest seen so many songwriters. The reason for that might be that the rules of the contest have been changed. Only two songs can be submitted by each songwriter, instead of three.

According to rúv, the contest’s organizer, a long and complex process will ensue during which a special committee has the task of choosing the finalists, which will be announced in mid-November.

Next year’s Eurovision Song Contest will take place in Denmark.
