ET Awards 2019: Best Promotion Video!


Eurovision 2019 – This year we resume the “Eurovision Times Awards” to give prizes (the Fridas) for the best in every category! And you get to vote! Today, we resume the polls with the two categories focused on promo vids and spokepersons!

2019 will be the seventh year for Eurovision Times to organize a new contest (you can check 2013’s results here, the 2014’s ones here, the 2015’s ones here, the 2016’s ones here, the 2017’s ones here and the 2018’s ones here). As with the past few years, our blog hosts now three contests: TEKO which takes place before the contest and the “Eurovision Times Awards” after the contest, with “Premath/Aftermath” which compares our rankings before and after the contest. The principle of the ET Awards is simple, in each categories, the staff of this website will nominate a few entries per categories and open polls for the public to vote in them so we can reveal afterwards all the winners. The winners recieve an imaginary trophee, entitled the Fridas in hommage to Frida Boccara, the French Eurovision winner in 1969 with “Un jour, un enfant“.

The eleventh award is in the “Delegation” category and it’s “Best Promo Video”. Former winners are: Malta (2013), Montenegro (2014), Norway (2015), France (2016), FYR Macedonia (2017) and Israel (2018). Here are the results of the recommendations made by the regular users of Eurovision Times in this category:

  • 10 Netherlands
  • 10 Italy
  • 8 Switzerland
  • 6 Iceland
  • 5 Azerbaijan
  • 5 Greece
  • 4 Malta
  • 3 Slovenia
  • 2 Cyprus
  • 2 Poland
  • 2 Russi
  • 2 San Marino
  • 2 Spain
  • 1 Armenia
  • 1 Austria
  • 1 Czech Republic
  • 1 Georgia
  • 1 Israel
  • 1 Romania

However, it’s down to the staff of Eurovision Times to choose the official nominees, including unpopular or controversial ones! But it’s up to you to vote in our poll below which entry had the best promo video this year! The nominees in alphabetical order are:

Rules: the polls will be open for a week. At the end of the week, an article will announce the winner of the category but not the detailed results. The full results will however be given to you once all polls are closed so that you don’t get influenced (we never know) in your following votes. Every IP gets only one vote, please do not cheat, do take in consideration to watch very careful to the props before voting and do not vote necessarily for your favorite song but vote regarding to the category. Of course, it’s pointless to vote only for your own country unless you’re really certain it should win. May the best win!

  1. Iceland’s is imo the masterpiece of the year. But Duncan’s ass is when I fell in love with him forever <3

  2. Sad Switzerland didn’t get a nom, I think they were truly the best. Voted for Azerbaijan instead. Iceland was good also. Didn’t see much special about the other videos (especially Italy whose nomination seems more like bias towards liking the song than a great video imo).

  3. Both AZE and NL had a video that was much better than their eventual performance. Yes, I’m easily distracted. Voting for AZE because Chingiz distracts me more than Duncan.

  4. I have watched most video clips only now and Italy is the only one I enjoyed. My vote went Mahmood’s way.

  5. Italy!

  6. I did not watch most videos, so I’ll skip this one as well.

  7. Voted for The Netherlands although both Italy and Greece had great videos as well.

  8. Honorable mention to Greece while having a tight budget they came up with a very decent,artsy video

    • Greece’s video was a prelude to what we saw unfold on the stage. Instagram influencer aesthetics. Style completely devoid of substance.

      My nominees were Italy, Switzerland and Malta. I am voting for Italy.

  9. 1. Netherlands
    2. Italy
    3. Azerbaijan
    4. Iceland
    5. Greece

  10. My favourites were Italy and The Netherlands. My vote goes to Italy.

  11. 1. NLD
    2. AZE
    3. ISL
    4. GRC
    5. ITA

    Malta and Slovenia (as my alternates)

  12. I like all 5, but Iceland is at another level imo so it gets my vote here.

  13. […] and the second this evening! You can click to look at the full recommendations and nominations from last week’s article here! There were 67 recommendations for 19 countries in the first round and 105 votes were cast in an […]
