ESC Covers is pleased to announce that as of today, the website www.escpedia will become a sister website to ESC Covers.
Both websites were in Valletta for the 2016 Junior Eurovision and we got on very well.
Both websites are based in the Southern Hemisphere, ESC Covers in South Africa and ESCpedia in Brazil. Both are based in countries not taking part in Eurovision and both are run by passionate fans of the contest. ESC Covers report in English and ESCpedia in Portuguese so we are not taking fans away from each other, and rather compliment each other.
We plan various joint projects in the run up to Kyiv 2017.
So a big welcome to Fabiana and her team from us at ESC Covers.
