by Stella Floras 81 views

For the ninth year running, OGAE Greece are organizing MPLE, their annual festival, in Athens on 10th October. This year the show will be hosted by Fotis Sergoulopoulos and Maria Bakodimou, the popular presenters who commentated for Greece in 2007.

Over 200 OGAE Greece members and friends are expected to attend this year’s festival. Split in 25 teams, each representing a Eurovision Song Contest participating country, they will compete for the first prize. The competing songs cannot have been in the contest itself nor any of the local preselections and they will be presented by brand new videos especially made for the occasion by members of the club.

The festival takes place once more at the Athinaion Politeia, the 2006 Eurocafe, and it will be hosted by popular TV duo Fotis and Maria who hosted the Greek final in 2007 as well as commentated for ERT from Helsinki. The organising committee promises many more surprises for the members present.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
