Festival da Canção 1992

The Portuguese broadcaster, Rádio e Televisão de Portugal (RTP), used the popular Festival da Canção to select their entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 1992. Festival da Canção 1992 was held on 7 March at the São Luíz Theatre in Lisbon and was hosted by Ana Zanatti and Eládio Clímaco. 5 semi-final were held before the final, each with 3 songs. The winner of each semi-final entered the final, in which they were joined by 5 songs selected internally by RTP bringing the total number of songs to 10. The winner was decided through the votes of 22 regional juries.

The winner was "Amor d'água fresca", sung by Dina and composed by Ondina Veloso (aka Dina) and Rosa Lobato de Faria
