The Faroe Islands is an archipelago situated between the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, approximately halfway between Scotland and Iceland. The Faroe Islands are a constituent country of the Kingdom of Denmark. However, they share the same autonomous status as Greenland and residents of Faroe Islands, Danes or Faroes, are not citizens of the European Union.
It is unknown if the winner will compete internationally.
