The hosts of Junior Eurovision, France TV, and EBU have unveiled a few moments ago the official logo and graphic design that will identify the 19th Junior Eurovision that will take place next December in Paris.
There are three inspirations behind the design: Imagination, Christmas and Paris. ‘Imagine’ – not just our Contest slogan, but an invitation to dream. Having our heads in the clouds, looking towards the sky and travelling at the speed of light. From author Jules Verne to astronaut Thomas Pesquet (both French, of course), the rocket has always been a way to touch the stars and represents the imagination.
The timing of the Contest is important to the design too – given that the festive holidays will be in full swing in France, the artwork resembles a traditional Christmas tree and is symbolic of magic, wonder, joy and giving.
And finally, for people around the world, Paris is the city of love and light. There’s more than a passing resemblance to the most famous Parisian of all… the Eiffel Tower.
The 19th Junior Eurovision Song Contest will take place on Sunday 19 December at the La Seine Musicale – a spectacular concert hall located on Île Seguin (Seguin Island) on the Seine river.
The venue is one of the most impressive and beautiful in all of Europe, and since opening in 2017 it has fast become an iconic cultural facility aiming to bring all music to all audiences.
The slogan of the contest is ‘Imagine’. A simple and effective slogan, chosen for several reasons. First of all, for the echoes of Valentina’s song that won the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Warsaw in 2020.
It is also the ground of creation, of the incitement to dream. It is the playground of the mind to build a better world, a new world. The power to imagine is infinite, especially for children. And it is something we need more than ever today.
At the moment, 15 countries have confirmed their participation in Junior Eurovision 2021. It is expected that in the coming days several more countries will join for this list. France TV will try to bring together as many countries as possible for this edition of the children’s competition.
