Tonight, just after midnight, a new winner of Eurovision Song Contest will be announced. The winner will be the entry who were able to capture the hearts and votes of both juries and viewers all over Eurovisionland.

But, as always, many more accomplishments are worthy of the rightful recognition. Three of these awards will be presented earlier in the evening when the winners of the Marcel Bezençon Awards are announced. This award is presented in three categories; the Press Award, the best entry as voted on by the accredited media and press; the Artistic Award, the best artist as voted on by the commentators; and the Composer Award, the best and most original composition as voted on by the participating composers.
And if that wasn’t enough, after tonight’s broadcast the voting for the Barbara Dex Award will open as well. This award may be a little bit less prestigious to accept since it rewards the worst dressed artist in the contest.

Awaiting the outcome of this year’s competition I’ve compiled my own list of ESC 2018 winners. Some more prestigious than others, all presented with love:
