Thirty-seven countries have participated in the Own Americavision Song Contest since it started in 2017. The contest, organised by the Own American Broadcasting Association, is held between members of the Union. Broadcasters from different countries submit songs to the event, and cast votes to determine the most popular in the competition.
Participants[edit | edit source]
The following table lists the countries that are eligible to participate in the contest.
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]
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.
