The Microvision Song Contest, previously officially titled and still normally referred to solely as Microvision, is a musical competition among micronations. Nations submit songs, which can either be preexisting or composed purely for the contest, primarily in video format, to which the other competing nations award incremental points based on popularity, with the highest scoring nation winning and gaining the right to host the following edition. Contests are often given overall themes to which nations' submitted songs should adhere.
The competition's inspiration is the Eurovision Song Contest, from which it mirrors a number of format and procedural aspects.
Microvision was started in 2006 by micronationalists Hieu and Dr-Spangle. The competition's traditional format saw multiple editions hosted per calendar year, averaging a competition approximately every three months in a period of just under three years between mid-2006 and mid-2009. Following the abandoned July 2009 contest, the competition took a hiatus until 2013, when the citizens of Flanders organised a new competition with a minor re-branding; forming the current official Microvision Song Contest name. Following this rebirth of the contest, editions have been held on an annual basis since 2013's.
