New Intro for Eurovision

Written by spiller. Posted in Misc, National Finals

The Logo introduced in 2004 which has the "heart" at the centre for National Flags to be displayed

Tonight Albania becomes the first country to broadcast the new intro for the Eurovision Song Contest. It will be shown before the fist semi-final of Festivali i Kenges 2010 which takes place tonight on RTSH at 20:30CET.

The intro was designed by Sascha Verwiebe a German graphic designer who has previously worked for German ZDF, Danish TV2, Deutsche Bahn, Microsoft and others.

The EBU wish to raise the profile of the “heart” logo that they introduced in 2004. This year the use of the intro will be voluntary but from 2012 all National Finals must use this as their intro.

It has now been distributed to all participating member states to use with their national flag in the “heart” so expect to see it a lot in the run up to Düsseldorf!

    I wonder will many broadcasters use it this year?

    This is not the new intro for Eurovision Song Contest, but only for all the National Finals in the participating coutries. The Eurovision Song Contest will continue to use the "Eurovision" animated intro used since 2009.
