The national broadcaster of the Faroe Islands Kringvarp Føroya (KVF), is going to apply for full membership in the European Broadcasting Union before the coming summer.
As far as the application for full EBU membership, the CEO of KVF commented that:
“Our ultimate aim with this application is independent Faroese participation in the Eurovision Song Contest
EBU membership is the first step. If we succeed with that, our next aim is Eurovision. This contest is currently for independent states only, but perhaps we can obtain some sort of associate membership first, and then we can work from there. By next spring, I expect we will have a much clearer idea of our chances.”
The Faroe Islands is an autonomous constituent country within the Kingdom of Denmark. The Faroe Islands are self-governed in almost all areas and is per definition eligible to become an EBU member.
The national broadcaster pushes for full EBU membership and the desire for a participation in the Eurovision Song Contest derives from the fact that this year the representative of Denmark, Reiley, comes from the Faroe Islands. Reiley represented Denmark with the song “Breaking My Heart” but did not manage to qualify as he finished 14th in the Second Semi-Final with only 6 points.
