With Eurovision New Year just around the corner, it also means that we are getting closer to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. The 19th edition of the competition is set to take place in Paris, on December 19 at La Seine Musicale. A few months ago, the slogan for the competition “Imagine” was revealed. Now, the corresponding theme art was revealed by the EBU and France Television.
The inspiration behind the design: Imagination, Christmas and Paris
As revealed by the EBU, three things inspired the design of this year’s theme art. Imagination is obviously an ode to ‘J’Imagine’, the winning song which was performed by Valentina.
‘Imagine’ – not just our Contest slogan, but an invitation to dream. Having our heads in the clouds, looking towards the sky and travelling at the speed of light. From author Jules Verne to astronaut Thomas Pesquet (both French, of course), the rocket has always been a way to touch the stars and represents the imagination.
The second inspiration is Christmas. This is due to the fact, that the 2021 Junior Eurovision Song Contest, is being held later, and less than a week before Christmas, in which the design resembles a Christmas tree. Lastly, the third inspiration for the artwork is Paris. If it isn’t that obvious, the artwork also has a resemblance, to a well-known French landmark. The Eiffel tower.
