Seeing the name JOHN BALLARD as one of the composers of the song for DO RE DOS in Moldova 2018, the name looked very familiar and asked around and Andreas in Germany reported he was also involved in 4 other Euro entries recently – namely
2013 – AZERBAIJAN – HOLD ME
2014 – RUSSIA – SHINE
2016 – RUSSIA – YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE
2017 – GREECE – THIS IS LOVE
ESC Covers really hopes the song he is involved with in Moldova will be their entry.
In Kyiv, ESC covers will be represented by Ian Fowell, our chief editor as well as Roy van der Merwe, the website owner. Roy will, however, also cover the 2017 Eurovision song contest on behalf of the Greek language radio station in South Africa, RADIO HELLENIC and because of that, we are doing a competition involving the entries of Greece and Cyprus.
The competition is fairly easy. This is what you have to do:
1 – Pick Cyprus or Greece (the entry you like best of the two)
2 – Put a photo of yourself inside the flag of the country you picked (so Greece of Cyprus) OR
Put a photo of Hovig or Demy inside the flag OF YOUR country.
3 – Send this to us at email@example.com and we will publish it on the ESC COVERS website OR
put it yourself on the EUROVISION COVERAGE facebook
4 – By 30 APRIL a panel of judges will pick 1 or 2 winning entries and these people will win a gift package from Radio Hellenic and ESC Covers.
Roy from ESC Covers will be reporting from Kyiv for the Greek language radio station in Johannesburg, South Africa called RADIO HELLENIC which is the only Greek language radio station in Africa. So obviously this competition revolves around the entries of Cyprus and Greece. There is no right or wrong answer and 2 judges from the radio station will look at the entries and pick a winner. Now what you have to do is as follows:
Pick one of the two countries – so either Cyprus or Greece and tell us in a few words why you are drawn to this entry. You have to send your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org and he will pass it on to the judges.
You have 2 weeks for this and then the competition will close – 15 March 2017 to 29 March 2017.
