National Finals + Recruitment
During the build up to the contest, various national finals take place and delegations have the opportunity to invite friends and promote the contest. For every vote a country makes in the national finals, they will add a ticket for the Community Wildcard draw. This also happens for every single participant you recruit to the contest. The Community Wildcard is drawn on application deadline day. Every single ticket is added to a random draw and the winner not only gets automatic qualification into the final, but also gets to select their position in the running order. This only applies to Semi-Finalist Countries.
