by Stella Floras 131 views

This year's Eurovision Song Contest winner, Marija Serifovic of Serbia, has launched a brand new, highly interactive official fan site for her European fans. Marija's café is in five languages – English, Serbian, Turkish, Greek and Russian- and it has everything a fan may need, from news, to videos, to fora in various languages and an online shop as well.

Marija's café, an idea of her PR manager Neda Savic, will be offering the singer's fans news on a regular basis, photographic and video material, a forum in different languages, information on next year's Eurovision Song Contest which will be held in Belgrade, an online shop and even a Shout Box for immediate communication among the site's visitors.

Esctoday.com spoke to Neda Savic who kindly answered our questions. We asked Neda how did this idea come about : "Beside my duties as a PR manager and spokesperson for Marija, I am responsible for fanmail, as well. After working with fans for more than 3 months now I realised that they want more than an info site, they want to interact! After receiving a letter from a couple of fans from Turkey saying that they are learning Serbian I made up my mind and we started to work on the site. This is the official fan site of Marija Serifovic. The reaction is fantastic!!" says Neda.

"Do you get visits from Serbia or does Marija have fans in other countries as well?" we asked Neda : "We haven't opened the site for the public yet but in two weeks we have been visited by numerous fans from all countries but Serbia. We already have a forum in Turkish, Russian and Greek and the site is in 5 languages, English, Serbian, Turkish, greek and Russian. This is realinternational fan site!"

Marija's café has launched a Logo contest, where all registered members can submit their ideas for the site's logo with as well as the Mcafe team logo. And, finally, registered members can exclusively watch a one-minute snippet of the new video of Molitva here.

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 esctoday.com 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.
