Press policy and rules

All forms of press contact must be handled by the participating broadcasters in such way that child artists are not out of their depth or placed in situations in which they cannot cope. The Head of Delegation shall be the sole point of contact vis-à-vis the press.

This means press members will contact the Heads of delegation in case of requests for interviews and photo shoots.

At the premises of the 2019 Junior Eurovision Song Contest we ask you to follow these rules:

  • Members of the press can only enter the arena to the dedicated area to follow individual rehearsals of the participating artists;

  • Press members can only enter the arena during the first Dress Rehearsal;

  • Entering the any other Dress Rehearsals is only allowed with valid tickets;

  • Press members without a valid ticket cannot enter the arena and are required to follow the show at the press centre;

  • Press members, photographers and camera teams can enter the arena by showing their press-card to the security, but must remain in the designated area due to production purposes;

  • It's prohibited to film or broadcast the whole show in any way without written permission from the EBU.

The EBU reserves the right to revoke accreditation in cases of rule breaches.
