Q: Who can join your team?
A: Technically anyone can join the team. You don’t have to be a pro and we always enjoy giving people a chance to express themselves. Whether you are a working mom in Bulgaria, a Swedish student or a Peruvian Sandwich artist, as long as you are professional and have a good grasp of the English language, then you should definitely apply. Oh, and it definitely helps if you are a Eurovision fan, but that goes without saying!
Q: I want Press accreditation, how does that work?
A: Every Eurovision blog and news website only gets a small amount of accreditation allocated which means there is limited space on the team. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee anyone a press pass for Eurovision as we consider different criteria including contribution, availability, skills and seniority. But we are always looking for local people to attend National Finals and we can probably help you with access. In addition, you are in charge of coverage for certain countries and have a lot of say in what direction to go.
Q: Will I get paid?
A: This is a volunteer position so you will be paid a salary. However, you may qualify for commission and we’ll be happy to discuss that with you if you’re interested.
Q: What else do I need to know?
A: We are a friendly group of people so team work is an essential aspect of your job so please keep that in mind when applying. We all share constructive criticism, even the leaders need a reality check every once in a while but we are never rude. We also understand that this is a hobby and not a full-time job so nobody has to dedicate their lives to be part of this team but there is a certain level of engagement we expect from each team member. And the most important thing is: HAVE FUN!!!
