#JESC: Why Minsk 2018?

The question arose in yesterday’s Press Conference regarding the decision to award next year’s edition of the Contest to Minsk  – Jon Ola Sand revealed all.

The most simplest of answers was to give the broadcaster more time to organise the event. This is probably been put in place after the fiasco we all witnessed on the lead up to Kyiv in May.

It is also to make the Contest more sustainable for the future – therefore if a country wins, they no longer have to worry about hosting the Junior Eurovision Song Contest if they feel they are unable too – financial or other reasons. This model will be used in years to come, therefore we can assume the Contest is safe for the foreseeable future after a period of uncertainty a while back.
