Georgia unveils its “Shine Bright” slogan and logo for Junior Eurovision 2017

Tbilisi calling! The Eurovision Song Contest 2017 final is just one day away and today EBU officials opened Georgia’s doors to the world, unveiling the logo for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2017 which will be held at the Sports Palace on the 26th of November.

The logo mirrors a segmented sun that channels different colours and expressions through the power of joy and diversity.

GBP’s Executive Producer is extremely confident that Georgia has what it takes to successfully host the contest.

He said: “In Georgia, music is a part of everyday life and it is still considered to be an educational tool for kids. Hosting the Junior Eurovision Song Contest is a great honour and joy for many in Georgia and we are very happy to share our culture and see children from many European countries Shining Bright in Tbilisi this year.”

Concept and art director Luka Ivanidze wanted to create a symbol that represents Georgian culture, while encouraging to reach for the stars, just like Mariam Mamadashvili did last year in Malta with her song “Mzeo”.

“We created this symbol from sunny Georgia, hoping that it will strengthen each participant of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest and inspires them to shine,” he says.

It’s the first time Georgia will host the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, after three victories in the competition and two failed bidding attempts. It’s your time, Georgia: let’s do this!
