Εurovision 2023: Τhe results of the Marcel Bezençon Awards 2023!
As every year, shortly before the Eurovision 2023 Grand Final, the Marcel Bezençon Awards ceremony took place.
These awards, which were established in 2002 and are the brainchild of Christer Björkman (Sweden’s representative at Eurovision 1992 and current head of Sweden’s delegation) and Richard Herrey (member of the band The Herreys, who won first place on behalf of 1984), they are awarded shortly before the big Eurovision Final to some selected participants.
The specific awards were named after the founder of Eurovision, Marcel Bezençon, and are divided into three categories:
- Press Award (awarded by accredited journalists)
- Composer Award (consisting of a special jury composed of various composers participating in each event for the most artistic musical participation)
- Artist award (given to the most liked artist and voted by the commentators of the state bodies of the respective organization, while until 2009 this award was voted by the previous Eurovision winners)
For the 67th Song Contest, these awards are won by:
- Press Award – SWEDEN
- Artistic Award – SWEDEN
- Composer’s Award – ITALY
