We already know so much about the participating countries of the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest, including the artists, and even what makes our three wonderful hosts tick. Now, for the first time ever, we want to shine the spotlight on the fans of the Eurovision Song Contest - giving them all the chance to tell their own story of what Eurovision means to them, why they follow it so enthusiastically, and how their love affair with the contest began.
Humans of Eurovision is an extension to this year’s slogan of Celebrate Diversity; not only will we celebrate the diverse range of fans, but also the diverse and unique stories that they wish to tell.
The Humans of Eurovision project will be concentrated on Instagram and Twitter. The initiative aims to give fans across the world the chance to be part of this year’s contest by inviting them to share their personal stories alongside a portrait of themselves in their country explaining what the Eurovision Song Contest means to them. Through this, we can build a collection of inspiring, loving, even humorous stories about what makes the competition so special to so many.
How does it work?
Don't forget to use the hashtag #HumansofEurovision. Everybody has their own particular reason for following the Eurovision Song Contest, to use the slogan from 2010, let's share the moment!
