EUROVISION Song Contest 2014 (part 2) – A Few MORE Good Shots in Copenhagen

The graphic design of the contest was revealed by the EBU on 18 December 2013. The theme art comprises a blue and purple diamond, within it the generic Eurovision Song Contest logo featuring the Danish flag as well as the hashtag and slogan “#JoinUs” at the centre of the diamond. 

The postcards used to introduce a country and their participants were shot in their respective countries and featured the artists using unique ways to create their country’s flag, e.g. the postcard for the United Kingdom features Molly creating the Union Flag from Routemaster buses, Royal Mail vans, and people wearing blue raincoats along with strips of red and white paper.

The Marcel Bezençon Awards were first handed out during the Eurovision Song Contest 2002 in Tallinn, Estonia, honouring the best competing songs in the final.

Founded by Christer Björkman (Sweden‘s representative in the 1992 Eurovision Song Contest and the current Head of Delegation for Sweden) and Richard Herrey (a member of the Herreys and the Eurovision Song Contest 1984 winner from Sweden), the awards are named after the creator of the annual competition, Marcel Bezençon.

The awards are divided into three categories: Press Award, Artistic Award, and Composer Award.
