Following the ever rising interest in Bulgaria for the Eurovision Song Contest, local fans have started the OGAE club and are now looking to expand by launching a call for members among Eurovision fans in the country.
Mazarra Mazerati, the club’s initiator and president, spoke to esctoday.com about the first steps of the new born club: “We are looking for people who are creative and hard working and would have some good ideas to promote Bulgaria in the Eurovision Song Contest, promote the contest itself inside Bulgaria and make OGAE successful.”
OGAE Bulgaria is also in the process of selecting the club’s new logo and Mazarra says they would be happy to receive designs from fellow fans around Europe: “We are looking for something simple, in the colours of the Bulgarian flag. As our club is so new, we cannot offer any sort of payment, I am afraid, but it would be great if our friends around Europe could assist us in this!” she states.
Bulgaria entered the Eurovision Song Contest in 2005 achieving their best result to date in 2007 when Elitsa Todorova and Stoyan Yankulov placed 5. In 2008, BNT, the local broadcaster, organised a lengthy national selection in an effort to raise the profile of the contest in the country. Bulgaria has been one of the first countries to announce how the will choose their 2009 participant, and that is through the Be a star show. (more information here ).
