Ekoz first debuted in the WorldVision Song Contest at the 32nd edition in Gronbis, Lyonsland. The contest is broadcast by Servå Televisie Eköses (STE) (English: Ekozian Television Service) and is responsible for selecting the national entry.

Currently, Sjårnafestivalen is the format that decides the representative for Ekoz at the WorldVision Song Contest. Ekoes Soekke vor Winaar, it's predecessor, was the most-watched television show in Ekoz, with ratings of around 87 per cent of the population. The STE holds an open call for submissions of both amateur and professional acts from Ekoz, it's surrounding Colonies and international nations. The STE allows entries to be performed in any language, however the song must be performed in English at the WorldVision Song Contest, however this rule can be relaxed. At least 50% of the final ten submissions must be written by a female writer(s). The entries of Sjårnafestivalen usually have a direct impact on the Topplistann Ekoeses, Ekoz's official Chart Company.

After Ekoz failed to win again in the 41st edition of the contest, the STE announced a hiatus of Eköse Soekke vor Vinna despite fierce public scrutiny. The STE internally selected Max Ønarsson to represent Ekoz in the 42nd edition. It became apparent that a member of the STE's independent jury had received a payment from an undisclosed source to vote for a set group of nations, thus, the STE were penalised and disqualified from the contest. Ønarsson would have finished with 98 points, joint first, however Kalosia was awarded more 12 points than Ekoz, putting Ønarsson in second place. As a result of the jury voting scandal, the STE announced it would not be participating in the 43rd edition of the Contest, making it the first time Ekoz hadn't appeared in the contest since it's debut.

The STE withdrew indefinitely from the contest due to falling viewing figures and a lack of top five placings within the contest focusing instead on internal programming within the country, missing a total of twenty five editions. The STE announced it would return to the 72nd edition to "test the waters" with Sanna van Umsaak performing "Can This End?", finishing in 7th position. Although successful, the broadcaster decided to continue with the hiatus. Sabrina Colarna, the current Head of Delegetion confirmed the nation's return to the contest for the 81st edition. Ekoz was due to take part in the 82nd edition, however due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Ekozian Government travel restrictions, the broadcaster was forced to pull out of the contest.

The WorldVision Song Contest is hugely popular within Ekoz. The contest often appears within the most viewed television events of the year, not only on the broadcaster, but in the country. STE has hosted the contest four times, twice in it's capital Carnise, once in Konikstaat and once in Rokkestaat. Ekoz has only finished outside of the top ten a total of three times. Ekoz has achieved a position in the top five twelve times (including WorldVision: The Teams) although Ekoz has never won the WorldVision Song Contest.
