Well today 3 March is a momentous occasion because today we found out just who will be following in the footsteps of Guy Sebastian and representing Australia in the 2o16 Eurovision Song Contest. And as if that wasn’t enough, the announcement was made by none other than last year’s Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst (previously honoured with a Daily Wrap) who was in Australia to perform with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra…goodness what a bonus.
So it will be Dami Im who will fly the flag for Australia surely the most European of all nations. And think of all the fabulously flamboyant possibilities of what she could wear! You’ll have to wait until she sings in Stockholm this year to for a dedicated Dami Daily Wrap.
For today’s Eurovision Contestant announcement wrap I have gone for golden heart overload because one of the most recognisable elements of the Eurovision logo is the heart which plays on the letter V. The logo designers tell us that the beautiful beating European heart is a symbol of bringing people together.
In the logo’s most recent iteration last year to mark the 60 year anniversary of the contest, the right side of the heart was revised to pop out for added impact. I have also gone for a golden bow and glorious golden dots in the background, because even when they don’t have the remotest chance of winning (and particularly not at Eurovision with factional voting blocks, rivalries and paybacks going back decades) Australians always feel they are a big chance to take out the top prize in any competition they enter. Let’s hope Dami has a golden moment in Stockholm.
