Unsuccessful attempts to participate[edit | edit source]

There have been several unsuccessful attempts to participate in the Own Americavision Song Contest. For broadcasters to participate, they must be a member of the OABA and register their intention to compete before the deadline specified in the rules of that edition. Each participating broadcaster pays a fee towards the organisation of the contest. Should a country withdraw from the contest after the deadline, they will still need to pay these fees, and may also incur a fine or temporary ban.

Turks and Caicos Islands[edit | edit source]

Flag of the Turks and Caicos Islands.svg Turks and Caicos Islands has never participated in the Own Americavision Song Contest.

In June 2019, RTC attempted to gain OABU membership and thus participate independently and make their debut in the Own Americavision Song Contest 6 but they eventually were not able to do so due to a lack of available artists, though a debut in the future has not been ruled out if there is the interest shown from more artists.
