The ESCT Second Chance Contest, is a song contest organized by fans and delegations of the Eurovision Song Contest Tengaged since June 2017. The contest is produced by Alejandro Ramírez.


The contest takes place during and after the ESCT edition, with non-winning songs which have been featured in the national finals of the previous ESCT edition.


To participate in the contest, it is required to have a public national selection held for the respective ESCT edition. Every delegation can only have one entry. The song can be only selected internally and cannot be changed after it was selected. The selected song must be from the final of the selection unless the selection has not the format of the semi-finals and final. The songs that participated in the contest cannot re-enter the country's national final.


The voting stays open for less than a week. Only the participating delegations can vote while the non-participating delegations can vote as well but as part of the "Rest of the World".
