Krajowe Eliminacje (National Qualification) is the Polish national selection for the country's entry to the Eurovision Song Contest. The first Krajowe Eliminacje contest was held in 2010. In 2003-2004 the national selection was named to the Krajowe Eliminacje do Konkursu Piosenki Eurowizji and in years 2006-2009 under the name Piosenka dla Europy.

Polish Television (TVP) decision not to send representatives to Eurovision in 2012 and 2013 caused a controversy in Poland.[1] It has resumed its support in 2014.[2] However, unlike in the previous recent editions, the Polish representative was selected not by the public, but by an internal TVP commission (as has happened in the years 1994-2002); the resulting lack of transparency was also criticized.[3] Because of this, the selection returned in 2016, supported by the new management of TVP and deemed as a more correct way to choose the entry for Eurovision.[4]
