BBC has launched a tender for the production company that is going to produce the postcards for Eurovision Song Contest 2023.
The British national broadcaster is looking for an independent production company to create the concept for the contest’s postcards. The concept has not yet been selected, that’s why BBC is checking various ideas. The production company should film 37 40-seconds-long postcards. The submission deadline is until November 3rd and a short list with the companies that will progress to the next phase will be made, while the selected company will be announced over time.
The postcards are shown before the song of each country in the contest, with each country having a different postcard. It’s important to point out that traditionally, the postcard is used to promote the country that holds the year’s contest or to present the artist that is going onstage.
According to the last details, the production company that will shoot and produce the postcards for Eurovision 2023 will be chosen until December 13th. The shootings will be done in March and April 2023. The production companies’ applications will be reviewed by Rachel Ashdown Lead Commissioner Eurovision Song Contest), Siobhan Mulholland (Genre Executive Factual, Arts and Classical Music) and Rianna Enahoro (Marketing Co-ordinator BBC One Marketing and Audiences team).
After the inability of the last winning country, Ukraine, to host the contest, Eurovision Song Contest 2023 will take place in Liverpool, United Kingdom, specifically in M&S Bank Arena in May 9th, 11th and 13th 2023.
