The submission period for EM 52 Song Contest will be closed tonight. By now, more than 30 countries submitted for a chance to win the next trophy of the Eurovision Memories Song Contest. Also, starting from this edition some changes were made in the organizer's Team: the former webmaster of the contest, Florin Suciu, is back again to make your EM experience as enjoyable as possible. He is the executive superviser and one of the producers who will ensure you high quality shows during the EM 52 competition.
Today, the logo design of EM 52 will be officially presented on our facebook page and group. The design is considered to be one of our bests since 2011 and it was created by one of our best logo designers in the competition, Brian Rodriquez. Also the slogan was revealed earlier today: Awaken Your Senses.
