clanak jesc 2016

14th Junior Eurovision Song Contest will be held in Valletta, capital of Malta on November 20, 2016 with 17 participating countries.

Maltese national broadcaster PBS iz the host organizer of the forthcoming Contest. They are very familiar with the event for it is second time that JESC is taking place in Malta. Malta last hosted the Contest in 2014.



EBU announces the format changes! Everything has been considered with lot of attention and thus is the result of joint work of the EBU, workgroup for JESC 2016 and PBS. The 14th JESC will be held in the afternoon hours on Sunday, November 11, 2016 on several Valletta locations.

The main “hub” of the show will be the Mediterranean Conference Centre in Valletta, one of the most imposing buildings in Valletta, the former Sacra Inferemeria of the Order of St John, which is located adjacent to Fort St Elmo and overlooking the Grand Harbour. This main hub will be linked to other beautiful indoor and outdoor locations around this historical city, including the Manoel Theatre, St George’s Square, Castille Square and others. These locations will be full of children enjoying the event and supporting countries. This concept allows audiences across many locations to all embrace the same show, and PBS will use exciting transitions to link all these different places.

Within the Steering Group we have been discussing how to improve and further the JESC format," said Jon Ola Sand, Executive Supervisor for Junior Eurovision 2016. "Many members, including some not taking part, felt that the timeslot was not suited to children and family viewing, so we have tried to bring the competition to a time more fitting for this type of event. Sand added: "On behalf of the EBU, I am very excited that PBS has agreed to host the event again, and look forward to working with them after the benchmark that they set back in 2014."

Within PBS we have tried to challenge every aspect of Junior Eurovision, based on our experience of hosting in 2014. We can again promise a high-quality production, together with some new additions to the format, as well as our Maltese hospitality to everyone who joins us in Malta this November.
