LOGO & STAGE DESIGNS
Today EBU’s Steering Group and NTU inspected Palace “Ukraina”, the 2013 Junior Eurovision venue. Now the stage is also presented. First in the back we can see big LED screens, and the floor will be made out of puzzle pieces. There will also be some floating puzzles. We can just say that it will be another amazing stage. (by Stefan Resimic/Serbia) The logo of 2013 Junior Eurovision is made also by a Greek designer, Vaggelis Ntezes and the organizers will award him live on Kyiv’s stage on November 30th.
WHY A MAN IS MADE OF PUZZLES
Puzzles require people to be creative; to put separate elements together; to use their creativity to make a picture. Puzzles also symbolise a delightful mystery – children all over the world use puzzles and Junior Eurovision takes this idea to connect all parts of creativity to form a complete, large scale event that celebrates children’s talents and ideas.
Executive Supervisor Vladislav Yakovlev said of the logo: He’s the perfect symbol of bringing all the elements of the show – the children and their talent – together.
