Welcome to your Eurovision Song Contest.

This is the seventeenth edition of the Yourovision Song Contest, held in Hereford, after Ellie Goulding won the contest for the second time in the previous edition, marking the UK's first consecutive win, and fourth win overall.

To date, the only two countries making their Yourovision débuts in this edition are Belgium and Antarctica, and the latter of which has been eligible to participate under the contest's rules from the beginning. Six former participant nations are also making their return to the contest this month, while, most notably, Italy announced its withdrawal, citing, as its reason, that the Head of Delegation needed a brief respite in which to find a "higher quality of song" to represent the country, and that a return in the following edition was "99.9% likely".

Edition 17 - Hereford - Aim High

The city of Hereford was chosen to host the seventeenth edition of the contest, as it is the regional capital of Ellie Goulding's home county. The slogan for this edition is "Aim High", with the reminder of the old adage that if you shoot for the moon and miss, you still land amongst the stars.

The dates for this edition are:

Participation deadline/Voting begins: 11th April, 2015
Voting deadline: 24th April, 2015
Grand Final: 25th April, 2015
