|North Vision Ranking of Nations|
Sweden debuted in the first edition of North Vision Song Contest and has participated in every edition since then. The Swedish broadcaster, SVT, has been in charge for the country's participation since the first edition. The broadcaster started hosting Fantasifestivalen in every edition since the first. However, their entries for the fifth and twenty-seventh editions were selected internally due to scheduling problems, making it the only internal selections for the country to date.
Sweden is one of the most successful countries in the contest, having twenty top tens including four victories. The first victory of the country was achieved by Malena Ernman in the third edition with the song "One Step From Paradise". However, Ernman also brought the first and to date only non-qualification to Sweden in the seventh edition, when she came sixteenth in the semi-final with the song "Perdus" and therefore failed to gain enough points to qualify for the final. The second victory was achieved by Loreen with her song "Statements" in the twenty-second edition and the third victory was achieved by Janice with her song "Hearts Will Bleed" in the twenty-ninth edition. The most recent vicotry was achieved by two-times-participant Agnes and her song "24 Hours" in the thirty-sixth edition, making Sweden the first country with four victories in the contest. The country is currently ranked first in the North Vision Ranking of Nations while its worst placement was twelfth after the seventh edition.
Sweden has so far hosted five events related to the North Vision Song Contest; the fourth, twenty-third and thirtieth edition of the contest as well as the second concert of the North Vision in Concert and the tenth edition of the Junior North Vision Song Contest. The sixth event to be hosted by Sweden will be the thirty-seventh edition of the contest. The contest has been broadcasted since the first edition by SVT and had several commentators in charge either for radio or television. The spokespersons have been different since the first edition. Every edition, a Fantasifestivalen participant is being offered to announce the votes.
