During the on-line accreditation, taking place for the first time in the history of the Eurovision, 820 journalists from 33 countries have registered to cover the Eurovision Song Contest live from Tallinn.

The greatest number of journalists is coming from Spain and Germany. The number of registered Spaniards is 115, and that of the Germans, 102. From Estonia, 82 journalists signed themselves up for the song contest, coming from more than thirty publications, radio and television. Raivo Suni, Communications Manager at ETV, said that the total number of journalists might be even larger.

The Press Centre, to be erected besides the Saku Suurhall, for the time of the Eurovision Song Contest, will be ready to host 1000 journalists. The Press Centre will be located in a complex of tents, the total area of which is approximately 2000 square metres.

Our Estonian Chief Remi Kübar will cover the contest, preparations, rehearsals and parties live from the place to be. Every day of the week we will update you with pictures and a coverage.
