In the sixth edition, the Åland Islands held a national final to decide who will represent the territory in Melodivision. In edition 7, Sweden took that national final format and used that until Edition 8. In Edition 9, a new format of National Selection was brought. Its name is "SwedFest". It was used until Edition 14. Since Edition 15, Sweden started to select their entries internally.

News: While Edition 20 is still running, Sweden already announced its intention to participate in Edition 21 in the 27th of February. The artist and the song will be selected internally by Special Private Committee in SVT. More information will be in March 2019.
