The funniest and best videos will also be shown in the three Eurovision Countdown shows. Three episodes of Eurovision Countdown will be distributed to all 43 participating public broadcasters, who have the option to broadcast the programmes. The three episodes of Eurovision Countdown will also be made available through Eurovision.tv.
Nicoletta Iacobacci, Head of Interactive TV at the European Broadcasting Union, says: "With Be A Winner, we give fans an enormous opportunity to be part of the Eurovision Song Contest and to reach a world wide audience with their video, through the internet ánd on television."
Last year, the first edition of Be A Winner took place, reaching some 3 million people through television and the internet. A Lithuanian fan singing the Turkish entry won the competition back then.
