by Peter Russell 59 views

Basim, the Danish representative at the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest, has recently completed a photoshoot to help charm the press throughout Europe.

Now that all of the competing songs have been introduced, it’s up to each country’s broadcaster and representative to make themselves known to the rest of Europe in hopes of garnering votes from the European public.

Now that the photos are ready, Basim can begin his promotions throughout Europe, putting his best face forward with the help of stylist Nicki Welsh and photographer Thomas Fryd.

You can view a clip on the set of the shoot below.

Since December, Det Kongelige Bibliotek (The Royal Library) in Denmark has been on a mission to capture and store all Eurovision-related materials that would be important to the Danish public. The project was spearheaded by musicologist Henrik Smith-Sivertsen, but has since become a much larger project for the library in an effort to capture any media posted on social sites and used in the press, both within Denmark, and beyond.

The content will be store in the Netarkivet (Net Archive), which is primarily used by researchers, as it is not currently available to the general public.

Basim will represent Denmark at the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 in Copenhagen with his entry Cliché Love Song. As the host country, Denmark automatically qualifies for a place in the Grand Final on 10 May.
