for financial reasons. The national broadcaster had stated that it hoped to return to the contest in 2014,[1] and on 18 November 2013 it submitted a preliminary application to compete in the 2014 contest,[2] but on 18 December 2013 it was revealed that Bosnia & Herzegovina would not be returning for 2014.[3] On 9 September 2014, BHRT announced that they had submitted an application to the 2015 contest in Vienna, Austria.[4] On 30 October 2014, it was announced by an official BHRT press release that participation was still in jeopardy due to the financial difficulties. EBU granted them a deadline extension until 14 November 2014 to make a final decision regarding their participation.[5] On 17 November 2014, BHRT announced that they would not be competing in the 2015 Contest, having not secured the necessary funds to finance their participation.[6] On 24 November 2015 BHRT announced that they would return to the contest in 2016.[7] On 29 September 2016, BHRT announced once again its withdrawal from the competition in 2017, due to the difficult financial situation that the national broadcaster is currently facing.[8] Contestants[edit] For contestants prior to 1993, see Yugoslavia in the Eurovision
