1. Eurovision.tv will broadcast it live on saturday (they announced on their website)

There are some projects but they aren't announced for a society

surely *something* needs to be made public at some point, right? how else can they convince the ioc to vote for them without an idea of what they're voting for? it looks like some interesting designs will be unveiled, as evidenced by your pictures. i can't wait to see them.
