Other countries[edit]

To be eligible to participate in the Fantasia Contest, a country is required to be an active member of the Fantasia Broadcasting Association (FBA). The FBA issued an invitation to all active members of the FBA to participate in the contest.

Active FBA members[edit]

  •  Atlandia: Despite originally confirming their intention to participate, the Atlandian broadcaster failed to send an entry for confirmation and was disqualified.
  •  Moowaus: Moowaus failed to officially confirm or withdraw for the 20th edition, and thus was not on the final list of participants.
  •  Pashlanahuy: The Pashlanahuy broadcaster confirmed the country would temporarily withdraw for the 20th edition, with a return in the 21st edition likely.
  •  Shinkoyu: The Shinkoyuese broadcaster announced the country's permanent withdrawal from the contest, citing poor results and a lack of interest from the public.
