NICOSIA, CYPRUS – Back in 2006 oikotimes.com collaborated with the official sponsor of Eurovision 2006, Cosmote, to bring the best fan coverage of the event. One of our projects was the coverage of the Cypriot national final.
During the national selection our representative in Cyprus attended the event at the CyBC studios and made wonderful photos from the show while later on our Greek editor George Papas commented the official previews in the special show on RIK1.
The national final won by Annet Artani, a Greek American singer while the show featured many Eurovision stars like Lisa Andreas (Cyprus 2004), Linda Martin (Ireland 1984, 1992 winner), Alex Panayi (Cyprus 1995, 2000) and messages from Anna Vissi (Greece 2006) and Helena Paparizou (Greece 2001, 2005 winner).
Back in 2006 oikotimes.com team had the honour to maintain and managing the official CyBC Eurovision website!
