Opportunities to Earn Points 2019
The opportunity to earn points for the 2019 ticket list will run from November 2017 to 31 October 2018.
On our Facebook page, all points opportunities will include #2019Points in the post. This will help you easily identify and search for opportunities on the page. Please note that by participating in a points opportunity you are agreeing to do so within the parameters set out below. All points opportunities are open to all members of the club unless explicitly stated otherwise.
Empowered by Eurovision
In 2018 Israel won with a song that was about empowerment, so we want to hear from members what from Eurovision has empowered you. We want you to tell us about the song, lyric, artist or performance from Eurovision that you personally found empowering or inspiring. Make sure you tell us why it made you feel that way.
You can choose to share your story either in writing (no more than 300 words) or in a short video (no more than 45 seconds). Please note that we will be sharing these entries with other members.
Entries should be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org (please use “Empowered by Eurovision” as your subject line) by no later than Noon CET on 31 July 2018. All members that participate will earn 15 points.
Upcoming Points Opportunities
This is Israel Calling
In August 2018 we will be looking at the 41 songs that Israel have entered in Eurovision. There will be 15 points available for this opportunity. Stay tuned for more details.
The popular sound bites points opportunity will be returning in September 2018! There will be 10 points available for this opportunity. Stay tuned for more information.
Members will be assigned a country to report on their national selection process. The ‘reports’ will form a blog on ogaerotw.com to keep members up to date with national selections. Countries will be assigned through a ballot. If the number of people wanting to participate is higher than the number of participating countries, then multi-stage national selections (for example Sweden) will be broken down and different members will be assigned different stages of the contest to report on. For countries with a direct selection, only one member will be assigned. Each blog post written will be worth 20 points. THIS POINTS OPPORTUNITY IS NOW CLOSED.
Forget the English
We want to find out what members favourite non-English entry of the last 62 years is. Members will have an opportunity to nominate songs for the title, and the nominated songs will then proceed to rounds of knockout voting, revealing an eventual winner. A maximum of 15 points will be available per member for participating in this opportunity. This points opportunity will start on 17 November 2017. THIS POINTS OPPORTUNITY IS NOW CLOSED.
Starting 19 March 2018, one country's entry will be uploaded to the Facebook page each day. You will have an opportunity to write a few comments/review the entry and how you think it will do in Lisbon. Members will receive 1 point per country they comment on. Arrangements will be made for those not on Facebook to participate. THIS POINTS OPPORTUNITY IS NOW CLOSED.
Good Luck Messages
We will again in 2018 looking for people to make good luck messages for the artists that will be performing in Lisbon. If you'd like to see some of the good luck messages that members have done in the past, check out our YouTube channel. Please note that this opportunity will be capped at one video per participating country, so only a limited number of members will be able to participate. Members may make their video in couples or groups if they choose. THIS POINTS OPPORTUNITY IS NOW CLOSED.
The post contest reviews are where you will get a chance to comment on the actual performance given at Eurovision. These will commence on the Facebook page on 21 May 2018 and one performance will be posted each day. You will be able to earn 1 point for each song you comment on. Arrangements will be made for those not on Facebook to participate. THIS POINTS OPPORTUNITY IS NOW CLOSED.
