The website JuniorEurovision.tv has been completely revamped and already provides the basic information about the upcoming event. Over the next couple of months, the site will bring its mainly young visitors exclusive material, including the so-called Time Machine feauturing content of previous contests, gossip, photos, videos and reports from the national selections and preparations in Cyprus. A page on the popular web community Facebook has been opened as well.
"It's work-in-progress, but in such a way that it will certainly be entertaining to follow the site's expansion! In line with the event theme, it's cheerful and colourful, but also cool and easy-going," said Nicoletta Iacobacci, Head of Interactive TV at Eurovision TV. With a free MyEurovision account, fans receive the latest updates by email and will, as the competition comes closer, get access to exclusive content.
In just four and a half months, young talents from across Europe will come together in Cyprus, to compete for the honour of winning the sixth Junior Eurovision Song Contest. The show will be broadcast live on 22nd of November at 20:15 CET from the Spyros Kyprianou Arena in Lemesos.
The first ever Junior Eurovision Song Contest took place in Denmark, in 2003. Ever since, the contest takes place every year in November or December. The format is very similar to the Eurovision Song Contest. The participants have to be 10 to 15 years old, which makes it the largest song contest for children in the world.
