This year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest trophy is made from solid glass with sand blasted and painted detailing. The trophy is made up of a cylindrical tube, embraced by a swirl running from bottom to top. The fused glass is coloured in red and white, which resembles Malta’s national flag. Its creation is aimed to bring out the best of the material itself as well as the talents of highly skilled craftsmen and artists and artisans who handcrafted each trophy.
The Chief Executive Officer of the Public Broadcasting Services Mr. John Bundy who designed the trophy together with the artisans at Mdina Glass, said that this is the essence of the theme this year: EMBRACE.
The design and the winner’s trophy was presented to the general public during a press conference held at the Mediterranean Conference Centre in Valletta during which the European Broadcasting Union and the Public Broadcasting Services Ltd (Malta) answered questions related to this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest and forecasts for the upcoming editions of the Junior Eurovision and the Eurovision Song Contest.
